Are you overweight? The solution from my HR Dept.

Monday, November 30, 2009

Hey all! Hope you had a nice Thanksgiving weekend. Mine was quiet, and nice. Uneventful, you might say.

So. The lady in our HR dept. will usually have some sort of dumb public-service flyer that she gives out with our checks. Really lame, common-knowledge stuff that goes right into the trash. This might include changes in our health insurance policy (which we already received in the mail), 1-hour martinizing coupons, or "Be sure to wash your hands in flu season"-style announcements.

Well, last week, we got: "How Can I Lower My Cholesterol". One of the tips may be advantageous to my SparkFriends.

"If you are overweight, try to lose weight."

But wait! You make it sound so easy! How do I do that?

"Try to lose weight by cutting back on the amount that you eat." Eureka!

I'm going to use this no-nonsense method for other areas of my life.

If I'm thirsty, I'm going to try to get a drink. I will try to get a drink by putting a glass under the faucet and turning it on.

If I'm out of a job, I'm going to try to get a job. I will try to get a job by looking at job listings in the newspaper. This could solve the unemployment problem!

If I'm single, then I will try to get a girlfriend. If I'm getting a sunburn, I will try to find some shade. If I need to communicate with a friend, I will try to find someone that has a cell phone.

Ok, enough snarky comments.
Have a good back-to-work week, y'all.
