Every day, I come to work with the same breakfast/lunch to eat at my desk: a low-carb tortilla, some skinless chicken, a piece of fruit, celery, and some kind of healthy cereal. Did I mention, low sodium V-8? You, too, would go insane, eating that every single day. So once in a while, I walk downstairs to our CBS Commissary, and go wild at the fruit bar, or beg them for an early shot of soup (not ready ’til 10 a.m.: but I go in, at 9).
Today was one of those days. So after finishing one of our short newscasts that are sprinkled through The Early Show, I arrived to find my new coanchor, Sibila, and Chief Meteorologist Josh Rubenstein, just sitting down to their breakfasts/lunches. Ta-Da! I joined them, and we all spent the next hour goofing off and telling war stories about the news biz. It was the first time I haven’t eaten at my desk in years. We took close to a full hour: unheard of. It was great. It also, was the hour I usually use to write this blog. And now, there’s no time. Hence, the worst blog ever. And I blame Sibila. So come back tomorrow, and I’ll post something wittier. (allegedly -Ed.)
BTW, the commissary makes a great low-carb tortilla wrap with skinless chicken. There was something crunchy in it: maybe celery.
