I tried to do a sympathy Master Cleanse diet with Paul, but only lasted two days. I maybe could have gone three or four, like if it was the apocalypse, or all the food in the world was contaminated or something, but as it was, by the night of the second day, I just couldn’t come up with a good reason to continue. I didn’t feel good–was super tired, but kind of wired from the maple syrup, and my stomach hurt from the cayenne pepper. And I thought F**k this, and warmed up some leftover Thai curry. it was yummy. Paul has made it through his fifth day though–good on him! I went to an accupuncturist for awhile in Tallahassee who said that fasts weren’t that great for me…that it was more important to just eat a good diet all the time, and I kind of believe that. Paul is built for more swings, both mentally and physically. It’s worth it to him to eat a cupcake whenever he wants for a couple of months, and then have nothing by lemonade for a week–I don’t enjoy how I feel after the cupcakes or the fasting.
The same thing with my sweater–it had two distinctly different names, so I ordered a small a medium of each, but they too were exactly the same. I called to complain, and they said they’d refund the $5.99 shipping that I would have to pay to send everything back, which seemed cool, until I looked at the bill and realized I’d been charged $19.99 shipping and handling to get the items in the first place. So for my second go round, I took advantage of the special offer: Free shipping if you ordered a wrap sweater. It was again the same one, but I ordered it, even though I now have four in the first box! I’ll return them with the free shipping, and use the new one when it arrives. In all, I’ll have about $600 worth of clothes before I return 90 percent of them, so hears hoping there are no natural disasters before I get them all safely back in the mail.
PS: I notice that since, my complaint, V.S. has renamed all the the corduroys so that they match each other.
