Life Lessons: Walking to the Gym

When walking to the gym, I used to walk along the edge of the parking lot. Last week, though, I realized that the edge of the parking lot curves out quite a bit to the right, but the shortest distance between two points is a straight line, so I set my sights on the gym and forged straight through the parking lot. This actually saved quite a bit of time.

Life Lesson #1: Always take shortcuts.

This morning, though, I couldn't see the gym in the distance ahead of me because it was foggy. Luckily I knew where it was because I've been there before.

Life Lesson #2: Always do things you've done before, because you know you can.

Please tell me that after shaving a couple hundred feet off of your walk that you didn't go into the gym and jump on a treadmill.

Please tell me you got hit by a car today while taking your shortcut.

Please tell me you realized later that the edge of the parking lot was vaporously poisoned, so you narrowly escaped death by following the spirit.

I was nearly killed by a bike driving in the fog.

Life lesson number 3. It is acceptable to risk death if it means you get to hang out with master Fob.
