I've not been motivated to exercise since returning from my trip. Some suggest you rest others suggest light walking or jogging. But I've been in down mode - I want to exercise but in the morning I'm not feeling it and in the evening I'm not motivated. I've left work at 4p.m. everyday and don't seem to be able to get there before 9:30 a.m. I really just want to have a good lie in. I've got a bike ride planned for in the morning - so I seem excited about that - but that is always how it is until the time comes. I'm bottoming out after being on a high from the running and I need to have something else to shoot for.
I'd said I blog about my route - I need some more photos because I'm only showing one part of it and that is really not that interesting. So for this installment and in honour of Friday
Joe grew up in a small town, then moved away to attend college and law school. He decided to come back to the small town because he could be a big man in this small town. He really wanted to impress everyone. He opened his new law office, but business was very slow at first. One day, he saw a man coming up the sidewalk. He decided to make a big impression on this new client when he arrived.
As the man came to the door, Joe picked up the phone. He motioned the man in, all the while talking..
"No. Absolutely not. You tell those clowns in New York that I won't settle this case for less than one million.."
"Yes. The Appeals Court has agreed to hear that case next week. I'll be handling the primary argument and the other members of my team will provide support.."
"Okay. Tell the DA that I'll meet with him next week to discuss the details.."
This sort of thing went on for almost 5 minutes. All the while the man sat patiently as Joe rattled instructions. Finally, Joe put down the phone and turned to the man. "I'm sorry for the delay, but as you can see, I'm very busy.
What can I do for you?"
The man replied "I'm from the phone company..I came to hook up your phone."
