Yesterday I posted that I wasn’t feeling all that well. Today Jessica, Abby, and Evie are all not feeling 100%. Go figure. I am feeling better, but they are feeling worse. Further, Jessica and I were planning on starting our competition to see who could lose 300 pounds first**. Being sick slows us down a few days but we’ll be back at it once we’re all better. My goals for early 2006 include learning to ride the unicycle (which is rather intense) and to lose some weight so that I can be buff like my brother and brother-in-law Kurt. Or buff like Buffy the vampire slayer. She must be buff with a name like that.
Of course one of the biggest problems with being well built is that everyone asks you to open up stuck pickle jar lids, lift their cars so that they can change their flat tires and bend spoons with your mind. I think I’ll be up to those tasks if I can just learn how to ride that “won wheeled wonder.” Of course the problem with riding a unicycle while buff is that people will think you’re a really, really weird guy to spend so much time working out and then wasting it on a unicycle instead of becoming a super hero. Sometimes its tough to be a super-hero-unicycle rider, but someone’s got to do it. And that someone is not me.
** That’s not a typo, its a joke.
