Body: Jack? Oh Jackie…?
Jack: You? What do you want?
Body: I need you to do me a favor...
Jack: Whatcha need?
Body: I want to you to grab a big ol’ bowl of chips and guacamole, maybe a beer or two... and sit your ass down in that easy chair over yonder.
Jack: Excuse me?
Body: Look, those shows we DVR’d ain’t gonna watch themselves…
Jack: I was thinking about heading out for a workout.
Body: Awww no. We did that yesterday.
Jack: I know…
Body: And you went for a run yesterday morning.
Jack: So what?
Body: So… haven’t you ever heard of a little thing called an “off” day?
Jack: I think I banked quite a few “off” days in the past.
Body: No, no… it’s a “use ‘em or lose ‘em” kind of deal.
Jack: I’m not sure I trust you, buddy.
Body: I just don’t see what harm there is in a little downtime in front of the tube…
Jack: And I think you’ve got another good workout in you today.
Body: I’m soooooore.
Jack: You’re a sorehead.
Body: I’m serious as a…
Jack: …heart attack?
Body: Yeah, as a… no. That’s not what I meant.
Jack: Come on… the sooner we get started, the sooner we get done.
Body: But I don’t wanna!
Jack: I said, come on!
Body: Don’t you know that you’re supposed to be listening to your body?
Jack: I tried that for a while and it didn’t work out.
Jack: Yeah… now it’s time for my body to start listening to me.
