You can't have your cake and eat it, too, Mom used to say to me.
She was right (darn!). You can't have it both ways. You can't eat like a cyclist and sit on the "stool of do-nothing."
If you want to eat heartily, you must exercise heartily. If you don't want to exercise, don't eat more than a handful of food each day.
The other day, a friend asked me (nothing new), "Are you going to waste away to nothing?" :eek: I couldn't help but think, "In ten more years, what will you look like?" :eek:

A friend of mine recently got $700 from a former employer in a settlement of a claim. He has categorically stated that he won't be buying dinner for me (skinny little me) with it. He says there would be none left. :eek:
I think I'm like many folks. If I ride a lot I still must eat "like a bird", just a large bird.
When I don't ride, I have to eat like a small bird on a diet. :cry:

If I were the type to enter eating contests, I'd probably do quite well. At age 32 and a regular cyclist, I can pack away so much more food than I could when I was a sedentary 18-year old.
I once knew someone "Chuck" who was in a buffalo-wing eating contest at a restaurant. Chuck and one other contestant remained, and they had both packed away a few dozen buffalo-wings. At some point, Chuck called the waitress over and ordered a very large slice of cheesecake. The other contestant asked Chuck if he was dropping out. Chuck replied, "Nah, I'm just taking a short break." The other contestant got psyched out and instantly dropped out of the contest.
I might be able to do something similar if I had a bottle of Tums at my side. But I don't think I'd want to. The bicycle ride home afterwards would not be too pleasant.

Why are some people named after verbs?
