I intend to sign up for yoga and become a flexible friend in no time at all. | R.D
Today is Friday, 10 January 2020, so as not to be too hard on those who have yet to abandon New Year resolutions, I will give them until March to do so. Even as I write this; gymnasiums (or is that gymnasia?) across Majorca have started relieving themselves of their brand new clients on a daily basis. A pal of mine who regularly works out, yet is still quite a nice fellow, who doesn’t actually say - “Hi bro, how much are you ‘benching’ at the moment?” Tells me that he avoids his gym in the first three weeks of January every year; but knows when it’s safe to return after the novelty has worn off with those whom he calls “barge arses,” which, if you think about it, isn’t very nice at all.
