I love the English language. It is so fun to mess with. Let’s talk about “mess.”
I have patients who are a hot mess.
I love to eat a mess of okra or fish or both.
I have dissolved into a mess of tears (usually when a patient says he doesn’t like me. How could that be?)
I have served food in a mess hall. (I was a camp cook one summer. Now that was a hot mess!)
Hot Mess is a great descriptor. Right now it probably describes your current eating habits.
I heard today that Missouri is one of the unhealthiest states in the nation. Thinking about the nation-that is pretty darn unhealthy. The news also claimed it is because we now have an entire generation of junk food/inactive people.
( The news media is so astute. They are a hot mess for sure.)
How did we get in this mess?
I want to be sensitive and politically correct – but face it- we are just plain lazy, Fast food, frozen pizza, drive through coffee …
We are a hot mess, eating a mess of fried stuff.
What are we going to do about the mess we are in?
I know, lets “ “Dialogue.” That will fix it.
Ha! Just messin with you.
