Boomer’s Rants (boredom vs adventure)

I was having a conversation with my mom about foods, and doctors, what is healthy and what isn’t.  We got to talking about eggs, and she stated, she asked her doctor about the conflicting stories she hears all the time.  Please keep in mind, my mom is one of those types that believes every thing she reads, or hears in papers or on the news.  She thinks they wouldn’t report anything that is knowingly false.  In no way am I saying that they would, but I cannot count on both hands together the reports I have seen where all the facts were not presented.  Anyway, back to my story.  Her doctor said that eggs are high in some ingredient that started with an L.   I forget what it is called exactly, but it  is supposed to be bad for you.  The doctor said that poached, soft or hard boiled eggs were ok.  Then he told her she should avoid fried eggs.  That would be all fried, scrambled, or omelets.  She says she is thinking of getting an egg poacher.  I said I like my eggs fried, even scrambled up with all the goodies and stuffed into a tortilla with cheese and salsa.  She then retorted that I should rethink my diet.  Why the hell would I do that.  First of all if we were all to only do the things that keep us safe and healthy, life would be boring and tasteless.  Where is the adventure in that.  Basically eating and cooking (that should probably be the other way around) are about the only adventure I get at this time in my life.  Besides, I have seen stories of people that are in perfect health, that get hit by drunk drivers on their way to church.  When it is your time the good lord is going to take you no matter what shape you are in.  So, you might as well enjoy yourself as long as, and anyway that you can.  On a side note here, I am on a diet only because I choose to be.  I am not following it perfectly to the letter, but thanks to it and the exercise I do on a fairly regular basis, I am losing weight.  I will be dammed if I am going to deprive myself of a little pleasure now and then.


About Bigboomer

Hello, first of all I would like to thank you for visiting my blogsite. I am going to tell you a little about me. My name is Ray, I started writing back in high school. Every once in a while I would come up with a few ideas and would write them down. Most of which became poems others became short stories. Some of my inspirations are of the heart, some of them come from the thoughts of the day. You will see, as you browse threw my site my poetry is about as diverse as you can get. I hope that as you read them some will have you thinking of love, while others will make you feel sorrow. I would like some of them to set you off to an adventure. Finally, I have some poems that may make you hungry. I do have some inspirations that just plane turn into ramblings or rants as, if you read in here, you will see. I have managed to get two books published so far, the first one is titled Pathways, it may be found at xlibris.com/RayBohdan.html. there you can view a couple of excerpts form the book. The second book is Mingling Hues of My Mind it is at publish America A little bit more about me. I am fifty-one years old I have three children, Rainney, Elisa, and Anthony and two well, actually, three grandchildren Raeanne Marie, Graycee, and Amaya. I guess I could go on, but then I am afraid this will come out sounding like a dating profile. Part of my site will be dedicated to my poetry, I plan to break it down into different sections and organize it by type/style. Another section of this site will be dedicated to my blog it will be about my rants/thoughts of the day. These will vary from political, to personal, to comical. I will talk about most anything and everything that I feel may be of interest to someone. I also will devote a section to some of my favorite recipes with hints on how to capture his/her heart by winning their stomach. My favorite foods are Italian and Mexican, but this section will not be limited to those two types. I do believe however, that the most important part of my site will be the dedication pages. These will be to memorialize special loved ones and friends, as well as thank those that have made purchases of my afore-mentioned book. This is exactly what you think it is. A way for me to sell my self as a writer. Publicly get my words and thoughts out into the world. Please believe me when I say that this in no way demeans or diminishes my passions for the people and the love of which I have written, and will continue to write. I trust that once you read my poems you will feel the love i have felt, the pains I have been through, and the joys of life itself. Once again I thank you for stopping by please enjoy.
