Horses: I'm very glad to hear that Barbaro is healing well after his leg fracture. Have you noticed, though, that Barbaro's injury has sucked all of the media attention away from Bernadini, the horse that actually won the Preakness? Something's just wrong about that.
Health: I got out of the eye doctor's office in under two hours. I couldn't believe it! And I came away with a piece of baklava from the snack store in the lobby. Yum!
I also bought a bottle of Tropicana lemonade. While waiting for Mark to pick me up, I read the ingredient list on the bottle. I ask you, why does this bottle of lemonade contain ester of wood rosin? Lemonade is supposed to consist of three things--water, lemon juice concentrate, and sweetener, with maybe some preservatives, period. I do not like having high-fructose corn syrup, salt, ester of wood rosin, and yellow dye #5 in my lemonade. Is nothing sacred?
TV: I've decided that I will watch Dog tonight instead of House, if it's the wedding episode. If I missed the wedding episode, then I'll watch Dr. House get shot. And I'll watch King of Cars afterward.
