It's Wacky Wednesday time again and if any of you folks are lookin' for the latest and greatest health fad, just follow the advice of 65 year old Navenna Shine who is conducting an experiment she is dubbing, "Living on Light". Little Miss Sun-Shine has decided to live without food for 6 months, sustaining herself only on water and sunlight. I hate to steal the lady's sunshine but, one major problem is that she lives in Seattle, a city that only averages 58 sunny days in an entire year. Guess ya gotta look on the bright side of thangs though, 'cause she already lost 20 el bees in 33 days. Heck, those folks on The Biggest Loser don't even make that kinda progress!
Anywho, Miss Sun-Shine says this is a "paradigm for living in which we as human beings do not need to ingest any kind of food whatsoever into our stomachs in order to thrive". She goes on to explain that we have a nutritional source of light embedded in our systems that gives us exactly what we need to be healthy and well. DANG, that theory just doesn't seem to hold water 'cause I've seen some dark and gloomy people in my day, and I know they ain't got much light embedded in their systems. Even folks with a sunny disposition can get can purty damn hangry if they go longer than 5 hours without solid food.
So, I say give it another week or two, put one of these bad boys in front of her face and Navenna is gonna chow down like she's in Nirvana. But, if sadly she doesn't survive this experiment, let's just hope her loved ones put the title of that famous Bill Withers song on her headstone, "Ain't No Sunshine When She's Gone"!
