    Maybe not - the olives make them moderately beneficial. Nevertheless, I'm enjoying one now; soon a second, and then, after a bit, dinner: sole filet, maybe poached; a handful of tiny new potatoes (red, white, and purple); and, a grip of greens tossed with a simple balsamico.
    I have a friend - for YEARS I thought she didn't like potato chips, as whenever there were some out she'd toss her head and say, "oh, no thanks."
    One day I had a bag, and we'd been walking or something. Almost absent-mindedly she reached into the bag for one. Then another. Then another and another, until the bag was empty.
    I stared at her and said, I thought you didn't like potato chips. She replied, I never said that. I just hate them because when I start eating them I can't stop until they're gone.
    She embodied the slogan "betcha can't eat just one."
