First of all, I've NEVER purchased anything from QVC. In fact, I've never purchased anything directly from TV, for that matter.
But here I was getting ready to start my New Year's Resolution about doing some iron pumping to supplement the exercise I get on my bike, and I can't find my gym membership card. It's around here somewhere, but God only knows where. I'm trying to get everything together for my first ride on Lucky to the gym loaded down with my gym bag, etc. and rain is on the horizon.
In the meantime, I'm flipping channels when along comes QVC and what they call "Today's Special Value" (gag me...lol) which is a "made-for-QVC" Bowflex.
Somehow they caught my attention today, and I watched for a while. The machine is about $650, and apparently can lead to immortality, if one is willing do just invest 20 minutes, 3 times a week. Sooner or later, one will have the body of a Greek god, doing a selection of 65 "club quality" exercises.
Gee, thinkest I, it would just about fit in my living room, if I moved that table over there, and the bikes over there, and ... and ... and...
Fortunately, I came to my senses. I'm still looking for my gosh-darned membership card (which I put somewhere for safekeeping), but even if that's lost, for a couple of bucks they'll give me another. And besides, why did I buy Lucky, if not to go to the gym?
Maybe or maybe not I'm not a Fred, but I'm clearly showing signs of knuckleheadedness!
