i'm going to peru in three weeks. that's right, hitting the ol' dusty trail. grabbing the backpack and being a traveller once more. only for 2 and a half weeks, but still. yippee!! no time to chit chat though, i gotta read my guidebook, surf some recommended websites, and do laps around the living room deciding which of the two pairs of hiking shoes i want to keep.

there are a lot of very overweight people these days, and i admit i have no idea what it would be like to be in their shoes. perhaps i just don't understand how very difficult the simplest of exercises might be for them. but when i see a 300 lb individual taking the elevator down one level, i feel no sympathy for them. i actually feel a bit of disdain. take the stairs for god's sake, it's only one floor! that little bit of exercise would certainly help. put in some effort. one flight! yeesh. you could even try walking UP one flight of stairs on occasion. maybe you'd lose a pound or two and eventually those 30 steps wouldn't be so daunting. is it that strenuous, or are you just lazy?
am i insensitive and rude? possibly. do i have a valid point? i think most definitely.
