Dessert monitor

I dropped into Sprouts over the weekend and somehow failed to divert myself from the baked-goods section, which means that I brought home a pie: blueberry, with a lattice crust.

Somehow I made it last through Wednesday evening. As is my wont, I washed out the little aluminum pan, and discovered on the bottom the ominous letters N-S-A.

It took me a moment to regain my composure. “Oh, yeah. No sugar added.” But after forking out $50 that evening on prescription drugs, I figured that it’s just a matter of time before the government starts watching my groceries — assuming they’re not already.

    I confess, this is one of my less-reasonable fears.

    Then again, I’m guessing the Affordable Care Act will cover the eating disorders that develop in people like me who would feel intense shame at having to step on a scale in order to be “allowed” to purchase certain groceries.
