Unhealthy world creates unhealthy people

“Back to school. Back to school, to prove to Dad that I’m not a fool.” If that is not a classic song, I do not know what is. In case you are unaware, this song is Adam Sandler’s “back to school” song which he sang as Billy, the main character from Billy Madison. Whether you are trying to prove to your dad that you are not a fool, or you are just looking to better yourself in finding a job in the real world, the reality of it all is that the school year of 2012 to 2013 has just kicked off. By the way, what is the next line to that song? I think it goes something like, “I got my lunch packed up.” That reminds me, the start of the school year means that I have to start eating school food again. Now that is something that I am not all that excited about. And this has nothing to do with the lunch ladies, the cooks or anyone else who is involved with the school meals. Everyone who serves the students and faculty are all wonderful people and I really appreciate everything they do for us. The problem really comes down to the fact that the food is unhealthy.
