There are a lot of good intentions about health and other issues that sometimes get sidelined, or slightly altered from concept to delivery.
1- To maintain good health, one should have plenty of fruits and veggies every day. Let’s see, I ate part of a water-logged avocado, some grapes that tasted like a dose of medicine, and a banana I could have used for a door-stop.
2- Everyone is supposed to drink 8 glasses of water a day. Yeah, if you hook up a hose to your waistband, and put the toilet in the living room…
3- Get 8 hours of sleep every night. Yeah, sure, after having 8 glasses of water that day…
4- Exercise every day. My hosiery runs more than I do… I’ve bought exercise equipment that eventually just sat unused-- the pieces robotically fused together into patio furniture.
5- I’ve bought several Chicken Soup For The Soul books. How about Chocolate Truffles for the Chocolate Deprived?
6- I thought I’d try a veggie burger--it was great after I loaded it with water-logged avocado, stringy onion fries, and a spongy tomato.
7 -I’d love to have a guava jelly donut from Whole Foods--that’s fruit, right?
8- I bought a pair of workout shoes. I wore them to the fitness room twice- they didn’t work out that great.
9- I also bought some Dri-Fit workout clothes, made in the Arab Emirates. Who’d they test them on, some dried up dromedaries?
10- Abiding by a meatless diet is a good idea… Until I get the Caveman instinct to swing a club at a juicy side of beef…
11- Uno Chicago Grill has a new snack menu to die for: The Short Rib Slider, make that 2, was delicious. I followed it up with a huge salad when I got home.
12- I’ve come to the conclusion to kick it up a notch, do more of the good stuff. After all, I’m getting older. When my next birthday rolls around, I’ll take it as a grain of proverbial salt; stonewall it, or rim my Mango Margarita glass…
