A VORACIOUS READER ... AT 7TH AND MONTANA


Eyes were popping at 7th and Montana this morning as an Anonymous Bookworm made the scene with the most unlikely reading material. The Bookworm, obviously no lightweight, had propped a large volume on health and fitness entitled The World's Greatest Treasury of Health Secrets, on what was perhaps one of the biggest Beer Bellies I've ever seen. "At least he has a built-in bookshelf," said Neighbor Richard, dryly. I say, good for him for reading-up on healthy lifestyles ... but is it really necessary to spend $39.95 on a book designed to teach you "how to listen to what your body is telling you?" Isn't it obvious, for example, that his body was practically screaming, "Put the book down, eat less and get moving!" Then, again, maybe I shouldn't judge a book by its cover ...!

LOL, for the most part you are probably correct. I remember a friend of mine with a six pack (and I don't mean the kind you drink) challenged me to get my blood pressure and cholesterol checked. We went and did it, and mine came out fine. His did not. So sometimes the most healthy looking are not always as healthy as they seem.

Well, if he were a healthy person he wouldn't need the book! lol

Speaking of healthy living, I am sitting here watching Hubby swat at the air playing Wii Tennis. lol

Have a good week.

When that picture popped up, I think my eyes bugged out a little bit, and I thought, "Whoa!" I think he needs to get a bigger and heavier book to cart around...maybe that will help!
