I thought about using an image of pizza today. Given the words assigned it would have been an obvious choice and in fact I have lots of pizza pictures on file. But at length I decided that would be just too easy, too unimaginative. I can’t honestly say just what the foods on the platter at the left are. There appears to be a wedge of cheese that might be roquefort and some slices of sausage that may be mortadella. But by and large looking at this tray of food leaves me scratching my head. (Just a reminder, the images in each of these posts are chosen from the image search results for the day’s three words.)
And what can I say about headsets? I used to have a pair of purple headphones. They worked just fine for a while, and then one day they stopped working. These days I have a set of black Sony headphones that I use to listen to music. My current headphones have thicker ear pads that seem to do a pretty good job of directing sound towards my hearing aid. When I listen to music through my headset I have to turn the volume all of the way up. And on my tablet, which seems to be a weaker device, I can’t hear it even turned all the way up. Most of the time, I keep my volume at zero.
Diet is an interesting word in my opinion. While it can refer to some particular weight loss plan or some medically prescribed eating restriction, it can also refer to anything at all one chooses to eat. I like that it is such a flexible word. If I could afford to, I would mostly eat as described in the South Beach Diet. Unfortunately, it is a rather expensive way to eat and I don’t follow South Beach near as much as I might like. On the other hand, I do have and take my insulin every day and it looks like my diabetes is very nearly under control. My thanks to Detlev Artelt who suggested these three words.
