Think Maybe I Can Distract Him?

April 24th, 2010 12:23 pm | by Ed |

It's official, Mr. Helpful and his wanna-be replacement are both doing their best to come up with ways to "help" me lose weight. Never mind the fact that I've now told both of 'em that my doctor doesn't want me starting anything new unless he prescribes it, especially since my recent "cardiac near miss".

After thinking about the problem for a while I decided to try distracting them. What I'm going to do is tell them about and the incredibly large list of weight loss supplements that the site has information about. I figure that if I can put just the right twist on the idea, I can end up with both of them spending a couple of weeks or more doing their best to duplicate and double check all of the information the site lists.

The downside of this is that once it's done they're both going to have a shopping list of recommendations a mile long. In fact, Mr. Helpful will no doubt have literally reams of printouts full of information and his analysis, theories, suggestions and so on.

This is a problem because with the warm weather now I don't want to use the fireplace enough to properly dispose of all that material and I can't just toss it in the trash because He lives just down the block and somehow manages to see almost everything that goes on.

At the very least though, I ought to get a couple weeks of relative peace out of it.
