I went to the doctor on Friday. To check up my carrot values etc. you know, the usual. My doctor reckoned there wasn’t any need to take another blood test since not much had changed since the last one. I saw him The one where my beta-carotene levels were… double the recommended. I committed to two carrots per day for maybe a month, but then slowly two became three. Then four small ones. Then five big ones. What can I say? They are just delicious.
I did ask him if anything bad can come from eating too many carrots, and the only thing that can happen is that you get orange, so I suppose it’s not the end of the world. Just look like I have a bad fake tan. Thats kind of trendy. But since I’ve started to feel more content in life, I feel like I want to be content on as many levels as possible. I’ve come to the conclusion that if you are content… you don’t get orange. That’s the rule. So in one way or the other, my orange-ness reflects some kind of discontent-ness. Weather it is that I eat when I’m bored or if I’m just used to it, I don’t know. I’m curious to know my life could look like if I could do some things in moderation. I’ve once again committed to only two carrots per day. (average size). I can stick to it, I know.
BUT I LOVE CARROTS. A lot.
