Near the Borderline

The borderline is a good thing if you’re hankering for some Taco Bell.

If your cholesterol is borderline–fast food’s not a good choice.  My annual physical is a little over a week away.

The gist of all this–I have to consume only poultry and fish, between now and then.

Starting after tonight’s roast pork loin dinner, with German potato salad, baked beans, and marinated coleslaw.

Time will tell if my dietary efforts pay off.

Another dietary concern involves my dog, Max.  He certainly isn’t starving for food.  Last night and today, I’ve caught him with baby turtles in his mouth.

They weren’t the sea-dwelling type, but rather, some species of land tortoise.  In any case, they deserved a chance to grow into turtle adulthood.

That Darned Cat

Same litany repeated, over-and-over, for the last three years.

You’re fat because you’re lazy

You’re lazy because you’re fat

Was that the best he could do?

What was up with that?

Why did I keep going back

To heart the same thing

Again and again?

You’re too fat!

Get back to the gym!

What was wrong with him?

I don’t know when it happened

I swear that it’s the truth

Doc, this is where I’m at

It’s all because of Dr. Suess

And that darned cat

THAT DARNED CAT

 

cat with hat

You’re fat because you’re lazy
You’re lazy because you’re fat
Was that the best he could do?
What was up with that?
Why did I keep going back
To hear the same thing
Again and again?

You’re too fat!
Get back to the gym!
What was wrong with him?
I don’t know when it happened
I swear that it’s the truth
Doc, this is where I’m at
It’s all because of Dr. Suess
And, that darned cat
