So, the girls at work are always talking about their present diet/workout plans. I usually don't participate, mostly because I am not usually on a diet. But, the stress of the last few months has resulted in a little something extra in the tummy area. So the last diet/exercise chat session, I tuned in.
Incidentally, I was also caring for a lady with giardia that day. Turns out that beavers are a carrier of giardia, and people in our area who use use natural spring water or well water are susceptible to giardia because we have a lot of beavers (who knew?) This lady was elderly and had lost some weight due to her illness.
That is when I conceived my Instant Adoption Weight Loss Plan. It is best explained in the little jingle I made up:
Goin' to Ethiopia
Gonna catch me some Giardia
Gonna lose me 30 poundsia
And put on those skinny jeans!
Basically, I think I had a return of Wait List Induced Delirium, except, you know, travel date wait induced delirium.
*Note* I have no plans of actually attempting to contract giardia, nor do I recommend that (from a personal or professional standpoint) as a weight loss plan. Unless you really love to poop.
** Note 2** Does anyone know if cats can get/carry giardia? Because Lily is a very curious cat...
