Something You Can’t Avoid

April 22nd, 2011 | Posted in nutjob hills | Comments Off

Joe Bob (or was it Bob Joe? I keep getting those two confused) was at the Nutjob Hills diner the other day chowing down on his three double cheeseburgers and curly fries while talking about his recent doctor visit.

He said that the doctor told him that he was going to have to lose fifty pounds if he wanted to avoid having a heart attack. The problem is that he’s never been one to be very active. His idea of a workout is carrying a pizza and a six pack from the store to the car.

He was asking if it was possible he could lose weight with one of those muscle stimulation things. I had to tell him that the only absolutely sure-fired way was to cut down on the goodies (including beer!) and start doing stuff. Even if all he did was walk or jog he could lose quite a bit and end up feeling better in the process.

He didn’t like the idea one bit and tried to get me to give him another way. Ok, I told him. Just pretend you’re chasing somebody who stole your pizza, beer, double cheeseburgers and curly fries.

He’s been running almost every waking minute since.
