Learn Something New Everyday

Posted November 5th, 2013 at 01:37 PM by Joseph Sweeney
So I'm a swimmer, and by a swimmer, I don't mean someone who goes to the pool to have fun or cool off. I mean someone who swims a strenuous fourteen hours a week workout, and then does another four-and-a-half hours of dry land training. And then skips dessert eleven out of the twelve months of the year... or at least, that's how it's supposed to be...

I was home alone one day for a few hours, I had already finished my homework, already been on the computer for a while, so I was just chilling and listening to some music from my phone. Well, that's when it kicked in -- you know, that enormous appetite for sugar?

Well, I fought the temptation with an apple... well, I tried to anyway, but I wanted something really satisfying. So I ate sugared cereal (lucky charms). Still, the temptation prevailed. Suddenly, my eyes flashed to the bag of cookies on the counter, "Just one." I told myself, but one wasn't enough, nor three, or four, or five, six and seven went by without a thought, and when I was finally satisfied... twelve cookies had gone by.

So I figured I learned several things that day:

1. If you have kids, don't leave them home alone with the cookies.

2. No matter how hard you try, sugar will always drive you to insanity.

3. Don't eat twelve cookies before practice; it affects your performance.

Stuff that I learned yesterday and didn't talk about:

1. Don't eat and Oreo and a grape at the same time; it tastes nasty!

2. Don't put maple syrup on your pancakes when you already have butter on them.

3. Watch where you're going when running in the dark; you're liable to hit something.

So yeah, that's the story of my life.

Did you guy learn anything today?

I learned not to eat mozzarella sticks, a burger, and Hic from Sonic and then run a mile about an hour later. Can you say stomach cramps?

That's what I try to tell myself, but in all honesty, it isn't.


That sounds like something I would do.

Hah, yeah, whenever I had a martial arts tournament or test, I tried to make sure to eat healthy so that wouldn't happen.

Doesn't help I have a bunch of dumb stomach problems and I always have to watch what I eat, anyway.

I try to find something wonderful in each day. Sometimes it's a real challenge. But if I eat twelve cookies, I sure enjoy them and try not to waste time regretting it later. I still suffer for them, but I've earned that suffering!

Mmmm sugar.

Also, Joseph, let the butter melt before putting syrup on the pancakes, it helps.
