COLD TURKEY

James Schmidt says, "While I suppose that I shouldn't gloat over the failings of the current Mrs. Trump, I prefer my Schadenfreude straight, with no chaser."

I am on a strict diet and have been for five weeks now -- no wine, no snacks except carrot sticks, like that -- and one of the things I have given up for the duration is schadenfreude, which, while not itself fattening, is dangerously addictive.

But I am tempted.

Indulge. Schadenfreude contains no saturated fats and it's completely organic (it's a bonus that comes along with original sin). About the only troubling side effect is that it leads to frequent blog reading.
