Daily Prompt: Red Pill, Blue Pill

If you could get all the nutrition you needed in a day with a pill — no worrying about what to eat, no food preparation — would you do it?

Short answer here: NO

I love food. I enjoy preparing food. I enjoy eating food. Food is important to human interaction. It can bring people together. There is a reason the kitchen is often the hub of the house. As important as the TV is, the kitchen beats it every time. A pill would be so boring. Imagine:

“Hey, friend, do you want to come over for a blue pill?”

“Uh, yeah, that sounds, boring. No.”

As opposed to:

“Hey, friend, want to come over tonight? We are grilling sausage and peppers.”

“Uh, hell, yeah. I’ll be there in 10 minutes.”

And what do you drink with blue pill? Does it get paired with a white or red? I am guessing, water. Water goes with the blue pill. I drink enough water.

Nope, no pills for me. I would much rather have real food. Even on days when I don’t feel like cooking or just don’t want anything special, I would not want a pill. A grill cheese sandwich beats a blue or red pill any day.
