One thing Bigfoot re-learn this evening California Pizza Kitchen: if ye read chain restaurant nutrition information, ye shall lose ye appetite. Even salad 1000+ calorie! That how Bigfoot wind up order side dish broccoli + Diet (ugh) Pepsi dinner. Bubs order children’s meal crunchy chicken, Diet (ugh) Pepsi, broccoli, brownie.
Corporate HQ nutrition info list approx 30g CHO chicken, 0g CHO drink, 67g CHO brownie.
Perhaps because request slice of bread before meal arrive (because combo bolus 50%-50% 1 hour/100g CHO upon sit table, not realize how S-L-O-W kitchen might be) + parent order tiny parsimonious meal for self/voracious eat Bubs’s broccoli remainders, waitress think Bubs/Bigfoot starving, impoverished? That maybe why waitress heap softball-size scoop ice cream on top Bubs’s child menu brownie. Kind, generous gesture.
Bigfoot look directly this gift horse mouth. Excuse me, this brownie with ice cream? I’m looking at the nutrition information for the children’s menu brownie? Does it always come with ice cream or is that something special you added on?
BIGFOOT: I mean, thank you. I’m just trying to figure out if the nutrition information from the corporate headquarters is for a brownie or for a brownie with ice cream. I mean it just says “brownie” but maybe that is shorthand for “brownie sundae”…?
WAITRESS: I think it could be either way
BIGFOOT: Do you know if it’s standard for the kids’ brownie to have ice cream on it?
WAITRESS: I just thought he would like ice cream
BIGFOOT: He does! He loves it!
California Pizza Kitchen corporate nutrition data sheet child brownie list 67g CHO. Because so experience measure ice cream portion, confident softball-size scoop (elsewhere menu boast Haagen Dasz) alone probably 67g CHO or more. And brownie = size at least 6 Oreo. Ergo ice cream not corporate standard. Confident this assessment.
And yet. Feel wishy-washy. For halfway safety hypo/other half safety for hyper, bolus additional 30g CHO. Not proud this lukewarm response, like try scare away mugger by piss in pants when actually ought run away OR kick in nuts, but too hard decide which course lead maximum success.
Three hours pp, Bubs in shower. I feel low. 86. Bed time. Juice. Bubs suck down entire juice like loin-cloth desert island man in cartoon, eyes bug out intense straw suction force. Tuck in bed 20 minutes later Bubs ask, “Would you mind, I mean, could I ask you to check me again in a little while? I still feel low.”
BIGFOOT: If you feel low, we should check right now
BUBS: But I was only 86, and I drank all of the juice
BIGFOOT: But if you feel low, you’re probably lower than 86 now
76. Juice box II. Temp basal -90% 1 hour.
Other than math/mediocre food, very fine mother-son date night: Boston traffic/The Moth/Lego store/(aforementioned dinner)/Says You/home/Lego sorting/Rene Goscinny Nicholas. Meanwhile father-other son football game date. (<–Glad not there. Cold outside.)
*This AYFKM is for both the still feel low and for the could I ask you to <—as if!
