It’s taken me a while, but I’ve figured it out. I know my brain hasn’t progressed much past the mental age of 16, and the body has kept going. That happens to everyone. Some things never change. One of them is my sense of rebellion. The thing is, I’m no longer rebelling against my parents… well not too much anyway. Instead, the authority figure in my life who is now the target for my need to break the rules, is my doctor.
Every six months, she marches me into the nurse’s office, get said nusre to stick a hole in me, and then a week later, tells me my cholesterol is too high. What do I do? I go and eat more hamburgers.
Surely there must be some balancing effect here. R & R is benefitial. Whether it comes from massage, yoga, chocolate, or burgers, has to be good for you, right? Granted the last two back there can be bad for you if you eat too much of them, but a little sure relieves the stress.
That’s my story, and I don’t care if I’m deluding myself, I’m sticking to it.
