My Mother has been a little overweight for years but always found it really hard to diet.
One day I found her in the kitchen, in the middle of an “on again” phase of her “on again, off again” diet plan.
Now my Mother loves anything sweet and this day she was pouring chocolate syrup into a cup.
“What are you doing Mom?” I asked her. “Aren’t you supposed to be on your diet again?”
“Yes I am”, she replied. “I’m saving calories by eating it without the ice cream”.
