As of late, I have been setting an alarm to rip me from peaceful slumber and announce that I have made a commitment to my very dear friend to walk with her at the '---- crack' of dawn. (I admit there are people who leap out of bed a lot earlier than me to do far more noble deeds. I salute you.) But this has caused me a dilemma.
When I wake my first thought is..."Is she crazy?! She wants me to do what?! I am perfectly happy with my fifteen extra pounds and continually decreasing lack of muscle tone. Do I really have to slither off my bed and into the bathroom to 'freshen' up to walk 3 miles?" The answer is invariably yes!
Do not misunderstand me. I love working out and striving for a healthier lifestyle. I do not, however,
enjoy beeping, blurting, song-playing, gentle nudging or any other form of tactic used to pry me from my pillow. I prefer sleep.
So my dilemma is this... Do I throw the cell phone at the wall or out the window? Because as brave as I think I am, I do not dare attempt throwing my friend!
