About Walking

The Importance of Walking

Walking can add minutes to your life. This enables you at 85 years old to spend an additional 5 months in a nursing home at $7000 per month.

I like long walks, especially when they are taken by people who annoy me.

The only reason I would take up walking is so that I could hear heavy breathing again.

I have to walk early in the morning, before my brain figures out what I'm doing.

I joined a health club last year, spent about 400 bucks. Haven't lost a pound. Apparently you have to go there.

Every time I hear the dirty word 'exercise', I wash my mouth out with chocolate.

The advantage of exercising every day is so when you die, they'll say, 'Well, she looks good doesn't she.'

If you are going to try cross-country skiing, start with a small country.

I know I got a lot of exercise the last few years,... just getting over the hill.

We all get heavier as we get older, because there's a lot more information in our heads. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

“Every time I start thinking too much about how I look, I just find a Happy Hour and by the time I leave, I look just fine.”

  12. I don't think I want to be walking at 85: my walker will 'catch' in a sidewalk crack, and there I'll be, tangled in aluminum, with a duck screaming "AF-LLLLACCCCC!" in my damaged hearing aid, while I try to channel what strength I have left into choking out a potential crispy duck lunch -- which I'd have to puree for my dentures -- and just started to pluck the bugger when the paramedics show up and send me for my 72 hour mental health hold.

  17. oh yeah, all the stored information is very heavy. And the only reason I'm able to take on more weight is because I forget about some of the stuff I know.
