The slide should have begun with Diet Coke. Then everything else followed soon. Splenda for sugar. Two of the three kaapis a day were replaced by tea. Coarse cracked wheat or chappathi instead of boiled rice instead of white rice. Gum for cigarette. Vipassana and meditation for alcohol. The veggie delight. Cable/satellite TV Max became Basic Digital which is what they have in prison. Two weeks from now I will not have any cable or satellite TV to watch, after almost twenty years.
Life has become a small pint of Coors Lite.
