On the train to work this morning I saw about a dozen people clutching Venti Half-Caf Soy Non-Fat BalugaBerry Frappuccino-like beverages that cost at least $4 dollars-- 4 days worth of food for my experiment.
Then on my walk home I spotted a lone apple lying in the space between street and gutter. I glanced around to see if anyone was watching, and I pounced on that free apple like a lioness on a lame zebra. Don't worry. I washed it very well. And it is waiting in my fridge for a day when I am craving fresh food.
