274. Carrot Icon
I like carrots. Years ago, my wife and I drove a U-Haul from Vermont to Chicago. We decided to do so without stopping, and we decided to do so overnight. Somewhere around Cleveland, we started to get pretty tired, and caffeine had stopped working. At the next convenience store we passed, we picked up a few large bags of baby carrots. When our eyes started to flutter, we'd munch and crunch. The crisp carrots kept us awake. And we ate A LOT of carrots.
It took me a full two years before I liked them again.
