I’ve decided to add a new feature to The Phil Factor. I’m sure that many of you who have spent over a year observing my dull, never-changing template are saying, “It’s about time Phil!” To those people, I say, “Don’t get your hopes up.” My new idea is my way of dealing with those little bits of ideas I have that are endless flowing through my mind. All day every day I have ideas or thoughts that while being possibly interesting or amusing never grow enough to become a full-fledged blog post. Like that game at the carnival where you pick a little plastic duck out of the tub of water to look on the bottom and see if you’ve won a prize, sometimes I pluck these thoughts out of my head. Just like at the carnival, when you look on the bottom of the duck and hand it to the carni, your prize is rarely as large as you wanted. Occasionally, in place of a real post, or just because I thought it, I’ll be posting those here as “A Random Phil Thought.” They’ll be like M&M’s (Smarties) for your mind. Here’s today’s Random Phil Thought:
The Leave A Bite Diet: For those of you who hate the low-fat, bland diets you read about, here’s my idea. Eat what you normally eat, but make a point of leaving the last bite on your plate and walking away. It may be slow, but over time those last bites will add up. After a week you’ve probably eliminated one meal. Over a year you’ve eliminated the equivalent of 52 meals.
By the way, if anyone reading this can tell me the movie where I got the quote I used in the title you’ll receive 10,000 Phil Points, which are redeemable at the gift shop, and you’ll be my new best friend.
