Pizza, the perfect food!

There's a lot of variation in what does and doesn't count as a food group. Some lists of the "five food groups" remove fats and split fruit and vegetables into two. But that's no fun when considering pizza.

If I look slightly cross-eyed in the second panel, it's because I was slightly cross-eyed at the time. This was about 9 months after I suffered a serious illness that hospitalised me for a month. A Staphylococcus aureus infection took hold in my sinuses, causing massive blood clots and nerve damage. Fortunately it didn't get into my brain or my optic nerves (thus I can still think and see), but it did destroy the nerves controlling the muscles of my eyes, which meant I had no control over where my eyes were pointing.

After the infection was beaten back with the big stick of modern antibiotics (without which I would not be sitting here typing this today - I would have been dead 10 years ago), it took those nerves more than a year to grow back and for me to regain control of my eyes. In the meantime, to avoid double vision, I had to wear an eyepatch.
