I don't want to know how the story ends

I don't want to know how the story ends.

I don't want to hear about the story.

I don't want to know there is a story.

But now, thanks to Activia yogurt commercials, I can't eat any sort of yogurt without thinking "you'll love how this story ends."

I didn't want a story. I didn't want a laxative. I just want to eat a flippin serving of yogurt.

It's the weirdest commercial, really.

And I see it most often on Friday nights on AMC, when they're showing old horror movies, frequently starring Jamie Lee Curtis. Boy is that weird.

And when I tried that yogurt, I had the WORST headaches.

Coincidence? Maybe. I can't think of any reason why any yogurt, even one with magical properties, should give me a headache. But these were non-consecutive incidents. It's very rare that I can tie my headaches to a specific food. I think three coincidences in a row is too many.

THAT is a riot.

I eat yogurt for the calcium and the probiotics. I have never noticed that over, or under, eating has any affect on certain activity. It does increase my ability to eat other dairy foods without having negative digestive affects (lactose intolerance issues).

Well, "regular" yogurt isn't supposed to have any special effect on certain activity. It's only a specific brands (possibly two different brands) containing certain dubiously-named cultures that are supposed to make you regular.

I don't know if they work or not, but given the headaches which may or may not have been coincidental, I'd rather stick with regular yogurt.
