Have a look at the guy to the left. See how he’s showing off his rippling abdominal muscles? If he were here I would tell him, “You’d better enjoy those abs while you have them because in just a few years they are going to disappear.”
It’s a sad fact that only very young men, usually between the ages of sixteen and twenty-five, have defined abs. Once a guy hits his mid-twenties he’ll usually put a little weight on around his waist, and then it’s “goodbye abs.”
My abs disappeared right after I graduated from law school and I finally had enough money to eat decent food instead of starving. I guess I didn’t miss them much, since back then nobody cared if you had defined abs. Now having rippling abs is a status symbol. I see some boys at my gym who do nothing but ab exercises, which I think is going a little overboard, but whatever ….
I spent my entire afternoon today running errands and getting an eye exam. I went all over the place, and the traffic was terrible because the winter tourists and part-time snowbird residents are all here. But I got everything done and now I am home and showered. I have fresh grouper in the fridge for our dinner, which is the tastiest fish that dwells in the Gulf of Mexico. It’s the steak of seafood, in my book. Outside a chilly wind is blowing so I doubt we’ll do anything outdoors tonight. Maybe we’ll watch a Netflix movie instead.
Have a nice Thursday night, friends.
