Desk clerk: Hello, welcome to the Last Resort. Are you checking in?
Jack: Ummm, I’m not exactly sure.
Desk clerk: Do you have a reservation?
Jack: I have lots of reservations. I really wanted to do this on my own this time…
Desk clerk: Do what?
Jack: Lose weight. Get fit. Be healthier. I wanted to prove to myself I could do it without this blog business.
Desk clerk: I see… so, how long will you be staying with us?
Jack: Hmmmm… I’m not sure. Especially after my experience at the Hotel California.
Desk clerk: Such a lovely place…
Jack: You see, my last visit only lasted a couple of weeks. But I’d really like to stay until the job Is done.
Desk clerk: So…
Jack: The thing is… the first time I was here I worked some serious mojo. I had a lot of folks stopping by every day and rooting me on. It all seemed so easy and fun. I think this is the place I need to be… at least I hope it is.
Desk clerk: Do you have any baggage?
Jack: Emotional eating. A tendency to slough off during my workouts. Eating too fast. Really arthritic knee. Sometimes drinking more alcohol than I should. Stress eating. Making poor choices.
Desk clerk: I see… well, here’s your key.
Jack: That’s how I view this blog. It’s the key to everything. To inspiring myself to be better. To holding myself accountable. To talk out my setbacks and celebrate my successes. If you think this blog isn’t the key to my new and improved future, well… you don’t know Jack Sh*t!
Desk clerk: Speaking of keys, do you want a key for the mini-bar?
Jack: And we’re off…
