Want to feel better about that post c/o the Widtsoes?
In the epilogue to the biography, Elder Widtsoe's grandchildren share that it was Sister Widtsoe who was very strict with their diet, and Elder Widtsoe liked to sneak treats and take them to his childrens' homes. During family outings he would pretend that the car was independently taking them to the ice cream shop against his will, while Sister Widtsoe contested. It was kind of a family joke.
I still want to do better, but I don't feel quite as bad now =)
