Once a week I go to the
track in Studio City. I run and do a short work out. It's a pathetic attempt
at life-preservation I know, but a brief burst of energy on a Saturday
afternoon is about as much as I can muster. Every week I see about five
or six reasonably young, able-bodied humans just walking. Not even, ambling!
They seem to be making no effort at all. Fascinating. Their arms aren't
even forcefully going from side to side. They are simply looking at the
clouds and walking! They jump out of their cars dressed in sports wear
and meander around for half an hour. What are these people on? By comparison,
I must seem like an Olympic gold medallist. Perhaps they can honestly
say "I went to the track today." God forbid someone might ask
"And what did you do there?" Personally I think these folks
should drive to West Hollywood, walk down Melrose Avenue dressed in their
Nike sportswear, and GO SHOPPING! At least kill two birds with one stone!
