Been doing a lot of walking and not much drinking in the last six weeks. Consequently, pounds have shed away but that's not why I'm walking and not drinking…so much. Much of it has to do with health -- the drinking. Some of it has to do with work -- the walking. However it happened, I made several discoveries: Lowa approach boots being the walking bit with Bing being the not-drinking bit.
A can of Bing can keep me going for four hours and five miles. I kid you not. It helps to like blackberries - And I love blackberries. At only 40 calories and 8g of carbs, it's got a bite and a wild tartness that will keep the kids away. Which is good news at roughly $2 a can. Last week I saw Fee Cranberry bitters and immediately thought of adding it to Bing. It's amazing. Four healthy shakes of Fee, since I'm such a bitter man, and I swear there's vodka in there.
And since the Friday belt - sans hooch - can't include a belt, I dug out the Reindeer braces. In the seven or so years I've owned them, they've been worn to three Christmas parties where they stayed under a jacket. No one knew about them -- but I knew they were there… just like low back pain. If you see a grimace - offer me a drink.
