Rory and I were walking around the neighborhood yesterday, seeing if anything had changed while we were in Montauk, when I sneezed three times.
A friend was walking by and witnessed the sneeze.
“Are you sick?”
“No, I just sneezed. I always sneeze three times.”
“Sounded like a sick sneeze to me.”
“Oh, I doubt it.”
Well, this morning my throat is scratchy and tight. My head is achey.
That man has mad skillz.

“Nothing is sexier than a sharp, happy mind atop a lean, healthy body. Few foods are able to deliver this promise like kale.”
This is wrong on SO many levels.

Today I survived a closed MRI.
For someone who is intensely claustrophobic, this is a red-letter event.
I did my homework on the procedure, so I knew what to expect. That’s why I opted for an open MRI when I needed imaging on my left shoulder a couple of years ago.
But an closed MRI was the only option today, which meant I had to face my fears.
I began by taking a light sedative, at my doctor’s advice — to take the edge off. And the technicians were great, walking me through the device and the actual procedure step-by-step. But the greatest help during what would have been 30 minutes of hell?
A series of mirrors that bounce images in the exam room back to me, so I always felt like I could see the outside world clearly…regardless of my position within the tube.
Hey — mind games are welcome here.

Well, I did it. I bought a whole watermelon at the store.
And now I have five pounds of regret in my refrigerator.
I usually spring for the over-priced containers of pre-sliced melon. I know they are gouging me, but it’s convenient…and I can eat that much.
Sure, that monstrosity in my frig was a bargain, but once I cut it — I’m gonna have to eat it all…or end up throwing half of it way.
Guess what I’m having for breakfast, lunch and dinner for the next few days?

The Sticky Egg has a bad headache.
We’re gonna pop some Advil.
See you tomorrow.
I’m not a doctor, but I play one in today’s post…
Feeling down? Lethargic? Watch this clip:
I watched a rerun of Wipeout during my lunch hour yesterday and laughed myself silly! It was the perfect pick-me-up.
Try it! You’ll like it.

Do you find it so stressful to shop, cook and clean dishes that you would rather not eat all?
Rob Rhinehart does.
He’s a software engineer in Atlanta who found it hard to find time for all food-related activities.
But he did find time to research what nutrients his body needs to survive and created Soylent, a drink mixture of vitamins and minerals.
Now he drinks Soylent for 90 percent of his meals. He doesn’t find the nutrition drink boring and has actually lost the taste for other foods…although he does say in his blog that he still enjoys sushi.
I’m guessing his taste buds have surrendered…
Or just don’t have the strength to complain.

How do you spell BLT?
Seamless.com, my favorite delivery folks, are discussing all the ways to make the tasty sammie with the three-letter name in their blog, The Delivery Bag.
Now, maybe I’m just starving because I’m on day three of a three-day cleanse — yes, I am starving — but the idea of bacon, lettuce and tomato in any configuration is a fun way to pass the time.
When I make a BLT at home, I transform it into a BTCC — bacon, tomato, and cream cheese on whole wheat toast. I’m not a big fan of lettuce, and the cream cheese just makes the sandwich that much more decadent.
Plus ‘CC’ are my initials — how cool is that?
So, how do you BLT?
