The Security Guard laughed, finally understanding why they called it Diet Square.
It housed an outlet for every fast food franchise that ever existed and the statue was a symbol that such contraband was out of bounds!

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    This is good.

  2. Iain Kelly says:

    Cute idea, though somehow I think the masses would rebel!

  3. gahlearner says:

    That was fun. “Nooo, don’t tempt me with food…”

  4. Dear Di,

    Pure and simple, I love it!

    Shalom,

    Rochelle

  5. Dale says:

    Love that you capture this all in a mere 37 words!

  6. Very clever. I’m on a diet at the moment so I can definitely relate! =)

  7. A good story well written, Di. There are far too many of those tempting places. 🙂 — Suzanne

    No wonder the statue was covering its eyes. It did not want to be tempted by the array on display.

  9. James McEwan says:

    A food fads dream, who’s watching them now. Eat, just eat. A good piece of observational writing.
