When is Sunday not a day of rest? Whenever I'm scheduled to work. Like today. Will it be busy? Well, it's difficult to say. We are moving into carpet season, however, prices are what I would call exorbitant. I was talking to a single father yesterday who wants to carpet his basement. I did an estimate for him and he was like "woah!" At that point I should have brought up our credit card, where he'd get 0% financing for 18 months. I didn't because he's a single parent. If he would have asked about our card, I'd have obliged him, but that's a decision he would need to make on his own. He knows his finances, I don't.
We hired a new associate who rides mountain bike. I don't mind walking mountain trails, but riding them? Not for me. He was telling me how he just bought some sort of shock absorber for his seat. Knowing an opportunity when I see one, I asked him if he wanted a bike stand to do repairs and tune-ups (I bought one a few years back and used it once) and he said sure. So, I got my stand up from the basement, dusted it off, and will hand it over to him this afternoon.
The Washington Post had a really interesting article about walking. According to medical researches walking just 11 minutes a day will supposedly help you live longer. While I found it interesting, I couldn't help but wonder if it was written for those who only exercise is to walk from their bedroom to their living room, with occasional forays into the kitchen to nuke a taquito or two. By saying this, I'm not specifically targeting senior citizens, but for quite a number of them this seems to be the extent of their daily workout.
A diminished CPAC is over. LibsofTikTok spoke. Her audience was non-existent.
Eleven minutes a day??? I tend to agree with you on who that is aimed at, but they can't be serious! And well done for NOT proposing the credit card to that single dad!ReplyDelete
Yeah, that 11 minutes doesn't make much sense to me. Another credit card is not the easy answer.Delete
CPAC is a loser parade. even more so this year.ReplyDelete
They don't know that going farther to the right is not the correct answer.Delete
They are more people over fifty than under fifty, and they probably need to walk.ReplyDelete
And I'm sure quite a number of them are overweight.Delete
