Primo: I should start doing some upper-body exercise.
Primo: I hate exercising!
Me: Yeah, I exercise because I like it so much.
Primo: I don't want to.
Me: Remember what Rob said at our reunion? The word we want is "spry." When we are old, we want to be spry.
Primo: I guess. My parents sure were not spry.
Me: Nope. They didn't even try. At least my mom gets on the treadmill. I can't convince her to do weights.
Primo: When my dad had his knee replacement, he was supposed to walk as part of his recovery. Not just walk around the house, but go outside and walk. That's it. Just walk.
Primo: He didn't do it. Not even once.
Me: Not once?
Primo: When the physical therapist came to the house, he did, but not on his own.
Me: The laws of biology didn't apply to him?
Primo: Nope. He was special. He was different.
Me: So glad that my taxpayer money funded his surgery.
