At a Christmas party, two guests are standing by the buffet. One has their plate piled high with food. The other has cleverly taken a Buffet Tour and has selected only the food they really wanted. The first guest is eating very quickly, the other is taking their time and savouring their selection.
Guest 1: [Simultaneously talking and eating] “Ooh, this food is so naughty! I daren’t think about how many calories are in it! And I’ve been soooo good recently. Luckily, diet starts again on 1st January, am I right? I’ve found a fabulous new diet. Apparently, it really works. I saw something on social media about it: some Hollywood star – I forget which one – swears by it. They’ve lost loads of weight and look amazing. It’s a bit like the R-Diet I did recently where you cut out carbs, sugar, protein and anything else with an R in it. This one’s called the Imaginarian Diet. Basically, you eliminate every single food and just imagine yourself eating. Brilliant! So easy, right? You should do it, you really should. Apparently, you can lose 2 stone in a week. In the meantime, I’d better make the most of it. I’m so stuffed but why stop now? Might as well be hung for a sheep as a lamb. I just can’t resist those little cheesy ball things – weren’t those big in the 70’s? You’re going to have more too, aren’t you? Go on, let’s be wicked together. After all, it’s Christmas.”
Guest 2: [Smiles warmly] “No, thanks. I’ve had enough.” [walks off to have an infinitely more interesting conversation elsewhere].
Which one are you?
