What City People Eat

Today I went to an urban business lunch, a buffet serving grilled chicken breast halves (about 6 ounces each), pasta with vegetables (pretty good), salad, and rolls. My table seated 8, seven women and one man, and I surveyed their plates and saw:
  1. Chicken, pasta, salad, roll.
  2. Only chicken.
  3. Only salad.
  4. Only chicken.
  5. Nothing but a nutrition bar she unwrapped and cut with a knife and fork and ate like it was a meal.
  6. Chicken, salad.
  7. Only salad.
  8. Chicken, pasta, salad, and, going home in the car, still hungry (because no one takes seconds) a package of peanut butter crackers, and at home, blackberry pudding.
Guess which one I am. Made me wonder, where is this country going?
