Good Intentions, Bad Results


This morning I didn’t shower
Because I wanted to exercise
And it seemed pointless to shower
Before I exercised

But the day went on
And I didn’t exercise
Because the requisite motivation
Escaped me

And everytime I found motivation
Something else came up
Like meals
Meals got in the way
Because you can’t exercise
Immediately after eating
But you’ve got to eat right?

And other tasks needed doing
And you can’t neglect your life
While you’re waiting to find motivation
To do something you don’t want to do
But once you’ve started a task
You can’t just stop
Because you want or need to do something else
Otherwise nothing would get finished

So the day went on
And jobs got done
And food was eaten
And it wasn’t a bad day per se
But I didn’t exercise
And so I didn’t shower either
Which seems a gross oversight
With the benefit of hindsight

    If I told you once, I told you one hundred and forty four times: Don’t be gross!

      I don’t think you had told me once though. That’s probably the root of the problem. Although the root of 144 is 12. And also -12.

      I’ve contributed to a fair bit of that paving

    I bet, unlike me, you got to the stage of getting dressed though.

    Bryntin, were those your tweed-clad knees rising from the bathwater? Sorry, couldn’t resist a bit of Goon non sequitur.
