I saw something quite interesting in the news recently : scientists discover “skinny” gene. If that’s true, then it should be made into a vitamin I can take. I really miss the days when I had a metabolism, when I could eat whatever I wanted and not gain weight. But since I got out of college and started working in a cubicle farm, that’s no longer the case.
Now, I know, some of you are thinking I should just eat less and exercise more. If that’s what I wanted to do, I’d be skinny. But I enjoy eating. And while I enjoy some forms of exercise, there’s not always time to do enough of it. If only I was genetically predisposed to be skinny, then I could eat fried chicken with biscuits & gravy more often. Oh, and include mashed taters, too, covered with gravy. Yeah, that’s the stuff. And I’d order pizza a whole lot more. I’d definitely eat much better if I was unable to gain weight. And then I wouldn’t have to rearrange my schedule, giving up fun activities, to make more time for exercise. And who knows, maybe if I wasn’t overweight and thus had more energy, I’d do more exercise-type activities. As it is now, exercise makes me feel tired.
So I’m looking forward to being transformed into a skinny person by the benefits of cutting-edge science. They need to hurry up with it, because I think a lot of people need this.
