You remember the story of Procrustes,
His guests were fitted to his bed. If they
were too long, he cut them down to fit. If
they were too short, he stretched them out.
How many times have you ordered a
“Special Lunch” when you weren’t very
hungry, simply because it was the cheap
est way to pick out the snack you were
after ?
How many times have you been really
hungry, and been frightened out of order
ing what you especially wanted by the size
of those “a la carte” prices?
How many times have you eaten meats
and vegetables you never did like and
desserts you knew you shouldn’t touch just
because !‘no substitutions are allowed on
the special lunch’’?
How long are you going to lunch on
Procrustes' bed, fitting yourself to a meal,
instead of fitting the meal to you?
