Not so long ago, I would sit through my entire lunch hour and read. Or I would be tempted to sit at my desk and work through the lunch break. If I went outside at all (and I usually did not), I would retreat to a bench somewhere in the shade to read.
I was out at lunchtime today. It was 65 degrees when I hit the street. By the time I returned, it was up to 72. I passed lots and lots of people sitting on benches reading or talking. There were a lot of folks out there just sitting around. I breezed by them all.
For some reason as I wrote this, I remembered years back when a co-worker gave another co-worker a funny but mean birthday card. It said something like, “All your life you always dreamed of owning an overstuffed recliner” and it had a picture on the front of a beautiful recliner chair. You opened it up and inside it said “And, now you’ve become one”, and I believe there was a cartoon inside of a fat person reclining in that beautiful chair.
And, I sweat.
I think it’s time to pack the workout clothes.
