I looked at the Spinach Soup in my bowl and for about a minute, I slipped into a childhood fantasy. I wanted to gulp the soup down and break into the famous “I’m Popeye the sailor man, I’m Popeye the sailor man; I’m strong to the finich, cause I eats me spinach, I’m Popeye the Sailor Man” while my I hear pops from the muscles sprouting from my skin!
