"The only way to do it is to do it."
"The only way to do it is to do it," or so the saying goes.
I fight it all as I pull my hair back and go for an unwanted jog outside. I don't want to, but I know it's important in keeping healthy. I put my headphones on, and I'm on the road again, listening to Road to Nowhere. It seems like an appropriate song. I stop mid-jog to see my dream car driving by. It's a 1970 SS Chevelle.
It would be a nice car to drive if it were ideal in a place like Florida. But it's not. Which is why I prefer my Ford F-150. I put my headphones on, and continue my jog.
After jogging, I head back home, where Nora is waiting for me. I hold up my fingers to her, letting her know I will eat breakfast once I shower. She gives me a nod of approval.
I head in the shower, secretly wishing I had time to take a bath, maybe enjoy a glass of wine. Who am I kidding? I'm not old enough to drink. One of my goals is to live to see 21. We will see.
If he is right, maybe I'm not dying after all.
