Home-town Hero performs feat of strength!
Thursday, April 15, 2010
In an unexpected display of physical prowess on Thursday, FitMary of Just Down the Street, America, threw out a half-eaten box of her favorite candy. "It was time," said the unassuming middle-aged woman. "Anyone would have done the same. I've decided to get things under control again, and this was a necessary step."
Her neighbors disagree with FitMary's modest description of her actions. "It's the first time I've ever seen anything like it," said Sympathetic Ear. "I'm not sure I would have been able to do the same. She's a hero." Skeptical Male was less impressed, arguing "The truth will be in the pudding. Can she throw that out too?" Another Older Lady insisted that FitMary deserved credit for her feat. "Even one box less is a miracle. It's going to make a big difference."
FitMary remained philosophical at the end of the day, commenting that the weekend would bring new challenges. "Every day thousands of boxes of that candy are produced and distributed. If I get rid of one, or even better, don't even buy it in the first place, our world will be a better place."
According to the Mayor's office, an official ceremony marking FitMary's accomplishment will be held later this year.
