SECRET TIP 1: DOOR LOCKS

or so I'm told.
Time: 5 minutes (including curling your hair)
SECRET TIP 11: VACUUMING

Don't bother vacuuming under furniture. It takes way too long and no one
looks there anyway.

|My Exercise Diary
For my birthday this year my wife purchased me a week of private
lessons at the local health club. Though still in great shape form
when I as on the varsity chess team in high school, I decided it was a
good idea to go ahead
and try it. I called and made reservations with someone named Tanya,
who said she is a 26-year-old aerobics instructor and athletic clothing
model. My wife seem very pleased with how enthusiastic I was to get
They suggested I keep an "exercise diary" to chart my
Started the morning at 6:00 AM. Tough to get up, but worth it
when I arrived at the health club and Tanya was waiting for me.
She's something of a goddess, with blond hair and a dazzling white smile.
She showed me the machines and took my pulse after five minutes on the
treadmill. She seemed a little alarmed that it was so high, but I
thing just standing next to her in that outfit of hers added about ten
points. Enjoyed watching the aerobics class. Tanya was very
encouraging as I did my sit ups, though my gut was already aching a little
form holding it in the whole time I was talking to her. This is
going to be GREAT.
Took a whole pot of coffee to get me out the door, but I made it.
Tanya had me lie on my back and push this heavy iron bar up into the air.
Then she put weights on it, for heaven's sake!! Legs were a little wobbly
on the treadmill, but I made it the full mile. Her smile made it all
worth while. Muscles ALL feel GREAT.
The only way I can brush my teeth is by laying the tooth brush on
the counter and moving my head back and forth over it. I am certain
that I have developed a hernia in both pectorals. Driving was OK as
long as I didn't try to steer. I parked on top of a Volkswagen.
Tanya was a little impatient with me and said my screaming was bothering
the other club members. The treadmill hurt my chest so I did the
stair monster. Why would anyone invent a machine to simulate an
activity rendered obsolete by the invention of elevators? Tanya told
me regular exercise would make me live longer. I can't imagine
Tanya was waiting for me with her vampire teeth in a full snarl.
I can't help it if I was half an hour late, it took me that long just to
tie my shoes. She wanted me to lift dumbbells. Not a chance,
Tanya. The word "dumb" must be there for a reason. I
hid in the men's room until she sent Lars looking for me. As punishment
she made me try the rowing machine. It sank.
I hate Tanya more than any human being has ever hated any other
human being in the history of the world. If there was any part of my
body not in extreme pain I would hit her with it. She thought it
would be a good idea to work on my triceps. Well I have news for you
Tanya - I don't have triceps. And if you don't want dents in the
floor don't hand me any barbells. I refuse to accept responsibility
for the damage, YOU went to sadist school, YOU are to blame. The
treadmill flung me back into a science teacher, which hurt like crazy. Why
couldn't it have been someone softer, like a music teacher, or social
Got Tanya's message on my answering machine, wondering where I am.
I lacked the strength to use the TV remote so I watched eleven straight
hours of the Weather Channel.
Well, that's the week. Thank goodness that's over. Maybe next time
my wife will give me something a little more fun, like a gift certificate
for a root canal.
|GUIDELINES FOR PATIENTS
1. DO NOT EXPECT YOUR DOCTOR TO SHARE YOUR
DISCOMFORT. Involvement with the patient's suffering might cause him to
lose valuable scientific objectivity.
2. BE CHEERFUL AT ALL TIMES. Your doctor leads a busy
and trying life and requires all the gentleness and reassurance he can
3. TRY TO SUFFER FROM THE DISEASE FOR WHICH YOU ARE BEING TREATED. Remember that your doctor has a
professional reputation to uphold.
4. DO NOT COMPLAIN IF THE TREATMENT FAILS TO BRING RELIEF. You must
believe that your doctor has achieved a deep insight into the true nature
of your illness, which transcends any mere permanent disability you may
5. NEVER ASK YOUR DOCTOR TO EXPLAIN WHAT HE IS DOING OR WHY HE IS DOING IT. It is presumptuous to assume that such
profound matters could be explained in terms that you would understand.
6. SUBMIT TO NOVEL EXPERIMENTAL TREATMENT READILY. Though the surgery may
not benefit you directly, the resulting research paper will surely be of
7. PAY YOUR MEDICAL BILLS PROMPTLY AND WILLINGLY. You should consider it a
privilege to contribute, however modestly, to the well-being of physicians
and other humanitarians.
8. DO NOT SUFFER FROM AILMENTS THAT YOU CANNOT AFFORD. It is sheer arrogance to contract illnesses that are beyond your
9. NEVER REVEAL ANY OF THE SHORTCOMINGS THAT HAVE COME TO LIGHT IN THE
COURSE OF TREATMENT BY YOUR DOCTOR. The patient-doctor relationship is a
privileged one, and you have a sacred duty to protect him from exposure.
10. NEVER DIE WHILE IN YOUR DOCTOR'S PRESENCE OR UNDER HIS DIRECT CARE.
This will only cause him needless inconvenience and embarrassment.
