You see, there’re these two guys out deer hunting, and the fatter one of the two suddenly collapses from an apparent heart attack (the fact that he’s obese doesn’t really play much of factor in this story, but this is a weight-loss blog, and it’s always good to remember that obesity can lead to heart disease).
Anyway, the one who dropped down doesn’t seem to be breathing and his eyes are glazed over. The other guy is all in a panic, jerks out his cell phone and quickly dials 9-1-1.
The hunter breathlessly gasps to the operator: “My friend is dead! What do I do?”
The operator replies in a calm, soothing voice: “Take it easy. I can help. First, let's make sure he's dead.”
There is a silence.
Suddenly a shot rings out.
Back on the phone, the hunter says, “OK, now what?”
I seem to be having difficulty getting my “go” going lately, and I suspect it has something to do with the lack of a definitive goal. I got under 200 lbs., and then I fluttered around for the past few months, adding a pound here and there (along with a little muscle, I'd like to think).
And this little ol’ bloggity blog? What’s the master plan, other than “keeping on keeping on”? I don’t know, to be perfectly honest. I thought about littering the site with a lot of advertising and then using the proceeds to buy some stamps, but then I read that they’re going up to 46¢ apiece I decided it probably wasn’t worth the effort.
I’m getting on an airplane tomorrow with my wife Anita and my youngest daughter Pisa (who invented this kick-ass time machine yesterday ... it really works!).
We’re winging our way to the Great Northwest to visit Anita’s sister and to spend a little time someplace that isn’t 100° by 9 a.m.
I blogged like a dog so that I could pre-load a week’s worth of JSGF (I shudder to think what would happen if a day passed and you didn’t get a little Jack Sh*t… I know how you get!), so I guess I'm going to relax and recharge a little.
And perhaps figure out the answer to that question that seems to be nagging me…
