We made it home after 7pm. we drove straight through. I remember walking in to see my wife and girls when I got home and I remember so much of my anxiety leaking away as I felt their hugs and saw their smiles. I was so grateful for my family.

Well the caller argued, "what about the impact the obese and the smokers have on taxpayers?" The host responded, "It is called personal responsibility!" "Well, how is that working?" responded the caller. The host's reply was perfect, "Freedom walks hand in hand with responsibility." If you want to be free you must be responsible for your actions and their consequences. Stink on my friend, stink on.

I am not vehemently opposed to adding a squeeze of lemon to your diet soda. As a matter of fact, I feel like it sharpens the flavor a bit. However, I am a radical opponent of actually floating the lemon wedge in the drink. First of all I feel like it gets in the way of the straw. More importantly I have no idea who cut the lemon. I don't know if the lemon chef is a compulsive lemon washer who ensures that all the chemicals and accumulated grime from the citrus voyage were cleaned off before the lemon was dipped in my beverage. I don't know if the the restaurant employee that was assigned to chop lemons used soap the last time he performed ANY bodily function. I don't know if any one of the service providers made sure to avoid spraying spittle over the lemons while discussing their latest woes.
With those thoughts in mind I implore you, please do not dip the nasty lemon into my drink.

So we decided to go to dinner and Chipotle has a burrito bowl option that is easily converted to a healthy primal meal. Eliminate beans and rice and add more grilled veggies and guacamole and you have a great meal. However when we got there, at least twenty people in line. Five or six were ordering and they were all hanging over the top of the spit shield and talking into the food. I turned and walked out. Never to return. They have to deal with that, people spitting into the food. You know that no matter what, someone has looked over their spit shield and slobbered into your order. Yuck. So we walked across the parking lot into Paradise Bakery just in time to watch the sandwich lady sneeze twice at her station and make no attempt to wash her hands. "Hello, may I help you?" NO! I will have a salad. Yuck.

On Saturday I went to the gym where I have a membership. It started off as a tennis club and has been around for a long time so there are some long time members there. Well after pushing through my 6 laps in the pool and finishing off with an executive workout. I showered and was changing clothes when I overheard a conversation. Two men were talking and one was asking the other if he ever played tennis. The younger of the two remarked that he didn't have time for tennis. He focused on Racquetball and in the winters worked as ski patrol and in the summers spent his time golfing when he wasn't on the racquetball court. The older gentleman said that he had quit other sports to focus on improving his tennis game. He told the younger guy that he had just returned from a national tennis competition where he competed against other 85 year olds from across the nation. He mentioned that he had played in the Senior Games for 22 years. 22 YEARS!! He was competing at the age of 85!!! Holy Moses. Then he joked and told the other guy that he would have enough time to get good at tennis since he was only 50. The racquetball player laughed and said that he was 15 years past 50. The younger guy IS 65 and he is super active. Holy Moly!! That is incredible. I expect to be super active all my life. I believe that I will live to be at least 150. That is my life, that is what I expect to be doing When I'm 85!!
