Kale chips – sounds like an oxymoron – contradictory words that end up next to each other – and here are some of my  faves,  so here we go – good grief, pretty ugly, butt head, free trade, crash landing, civil war, found missing, small crowd, deafening silence, act naturally, only choice, exact estimate, living dead, genuine imitation, random order, constant variable, plastic glasses, alone together, clearly confused, seriously funny, Hell’s Angels, virtual reality, original copies, freezer burn, minor crisis, tragic comedy, and I’m going to add kale chips to the list.

And to really blow your mind, check this out – the bumper sticker read “help cure cancer”, now wait for it … the driver was smoking. Smoking! Woooow! Back to my list – jumbo shrimp, boneless ribs, white chocolate, hot chili, ice tea, and one of my favorites – junk food. In my never-ending pursuit of healthy alternatives to all things nasty, but oh so very appealing (like potato chips), these chips deserve your attention – not a bad way to scarf a kilo of kale!
