I took the paper to the kitchen, as I was hungry I thought , I ‘ll make my sandwich first then read about blood pressure. I took two slices of white bread, the voice came back, “are you sure you want to use white bread, don’t you have whole wheat bread, it’s better, you know?”
I was irritated but thought it’s true whole wheat bread is better for me.I was about to put a thick slice of roast beef between the two slices, “bad selection.” I heard, “how about lettuce and tomatoes?”
