Macaroni and Cheese Saves Lives!
Have you heard the latest news? Macaroni and cheese saves lives! Did you know that? Are you surprised? I’m not. I knew all along the power of macaroni and cheese…I just knew it had life-saving powers! Certainly it’s saved my life – and the lives of my kids – and today I am going to tell you how…
I decided to write a note to Kraft to thank them for continuing to make macaroni and cheese in a box. Here’s what I wrote:
I want to thank you for making macaroni and cheese in a box. I know that there has been a lot of pressure lately to discontinue the making of this product, what with all the preservatives, colouring, and artificial crap you put in it. But really, I am so pleased that you h ave not succumbed to the pressure of health care fanatics, because if it weren’t for your product, I am not sure I would still be alive today.
You see, about 4 years ago I had a terrible car accident. After this accident, I suffered tremendous anxiety, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder. My life was, I thought at the time, in shambles. I could barely function for myself much less for my 3 year old daughter. I became irritable, disillusioned with the world, and eventually fell into a state of total apathy – no motivation, no desire to do anything, and I just did not care.
It’s pretty hard to get up in the morning when you feel that crappy. And it’s even more difficult to find the internal resources to take care of your child when you barely have the resources to care the tiniest bit for yourself.
And this is where you come in, Kraft. If it weren’t for your mac and cheese in a box, I am fairly cert ain I would not be here today. It was easy to make. Simple to “sell” to my daughter as a meal. Cheap. Always in the cupboard. It never went bad on me. And it got us through a really, really tough time. Without this product, Kraft, I am not sure we would have eaten anything at all some days.
I am pleased to report that I have almost fully recovered from my debilitating conditions but again, I must tell you that there are times when I have relapses. Times of intense stress – like selling my house, moving, the death of a friend – have caused me to fall back into the abyss of depression and until I can move myself through it (with the help of my homeopath!), I have relied on your product to feed myself and my children. It continues to be a life-saver for me from time to time.
You know, I don’t brag about this. I am not “proud” that we lived on Crap Macaroni and Cheese. But I thought you might like to know how yo ur product saved my life.
Sincerely, Rebecca Liston"
And so, dear readers, I share this with you today because I think you need to know the truth. There is a time and place for everything under the sun – including mac and cheese in a box. Don’t judge those who eat it. Don’t criticize those who buy it. Recognize that it might be the one thing keeping them alive…and let it go. You’ll be happy you did…and so will they.
