In Other Words — Seasonal

C7078BF8-1D8F-41EF-9933-131559A1F4C2“It’s called seasonal affective disorder and I get easily fatigued, very depressed, have feelings hopelessness, and tend to withdraw socially,” Martha said.

“Then you should just change your diet to less spicy foods.” Milton suggested.

“Spicy foods, Milton? What do spicy foods have to do with it?” Martha asked.

“Well,” Milton said, “if you have some kind of disorder that’s affected by certain seasonings, you should simply stop putting those seasonings on your food.”

“Milton, dearest, it’s a seasonal disorder, not a seasoning disorder.”
