Mom: Why do you want me to send the picture anyways?
Me: The weather’s better so I plan to work out hard this summer.
Mom: What does the picture have anything to do with it?
Me: Well, he showed me pictures of himself when he was my age. He was so much skinnier than I am.
Mom: Yeah, he was in the Army back in Korea.
Me: So yeah, it’s a good reminder that I can end up like that if I don’t start building good eating/exercise habits now.
Mom: <laughing> Ok. ok. But don’t post this on your blog. He’s a respected Elder in the church now. It’s better if no one saw him like this.
Me: No problem and don’t worry…no one’s going to see it but me.
