Overheard in a University of North Dakota Dining Facility*...

Silver's been dealing with fatigue, weakness, and (seemingly) never-ending hunger...


Ian: So, what did the doctor say?

Silver: Well, all my bloodwork is normal. He told me to eat more!

Ian (glancing down incredulously at Silver's piled-to-the-rafters tray, which is pretty much the norm for her): You already plunge half of the world's population into famine at every meal, and he wants you to eat MORE?!

Silver (cheerfully): Yep!

Ian merely shakes his head and keeps eating.

Personally, I think there's no justice in the world!

I was a bottomless pit at her age.

Last time I was at UND I was convinced that the town had only one plow. The streets were never cleared.

Plus I was pissed that the Barnes&Noble left town.

I can definitely attest that the streets are cleared. Because I need to wear damn earplugs to keep the stupid snowplows from waking me up at 5 every morning! xD

I must have been there the week that all of the plows called in sick. I made the mistake of bringing the little SUV rather than the big truck. Then a blizzard started on the way home... Nature didn't like me.

How does Silver do it? She eats, like, twice as much as me and she's around ten pounds lighter than me!

I ate like a lumberjack until I hit 40. Now I have to watch it a lot more or I'll have my own zip code.

I hope she does feel better soon.
