This is spookily weird. Yesterday my potassium decided to take a vacation from me for a little while, so really had to put the potassium back into me. One of my sisters called and she was going over all of the foods that are high in potassium, one of which is potato chips.

"How about potato chips? Eat some of those."

"I don't have any potato chips."

"You don't have any potato chips?!"

I don't believe I have heard that tone of utter surprise in anyone's voice in quite a while, and now Garfield speaks of chips. When did potato chips become a vital point of the diet for Americans?

To say it is "surprising" would not be all that correct, to say I am "startled" would be, perhaps, a little more accurate.
