THE PERFECT EXCUSE

THE PERFECT EXCUSE

 

Many Moons ago I had a sales organization and we sold motivational books on record including a portable player. It was fun and profitable

Luther T. Toliver was a below average salesman and had an excuse for everything he did or did not do.  People would attend our meetings just to hear his latest excuse. His excuses were complex, creative and well crafted. He was a master of excuse presentation. Here are several of my favorites.

“You all know my beloved spouse, Ima Jean. Well, she put near but not plumb had pneumonia, but the intern doctor gave her a subscription and it turned out to be a runny nose”. You must admit this is an unusual excuse for being late.

“Luther Jr. would have made a touchdown, but nearly had a compounding fragment of his kicking leg when he dropped that ball, because it was tossed flappity by that skinny kid who is of short height”. That is one complicated convoluted excuse for being late.

Luther had an extremely effective way of presenting his excuses. He was always fifteen minutes late, knocking loudly on the door as he entered, and saying in a loud clear oratorical voice “You will never guess what happened this time” as he walked to the front of the room, blocking their view of me.

THE NIGHT OF THE PERFECT EXCUSE

I was exactly fifteen minutes into my motivational talk when there is a loud knock as the swinging door swings inward, and the deep clear voice says, “You will never guess what happened this time”. I am being upstaged by a pro and right then Luther gave the perfect excuse.

MY AUNT BESSY’S COW DIED.

There is dead silence. We did not know if this was Aunt Bessy’s only cow, or if it broke a long line of cattle in the cow Kingdom.  We were not up to speed on Aunt Bessy’s emotional state. We were at a loss for words. Luther had given the perfect excuse.

I have three daughter who were teenagers. That night we set a rule. From this day, evermore there is only one excuse that is allowable and legal. “My Aunt Bessy’s cow died.”  That was 45 years ago and it is still a family rule.

This rule has been repeated in over a hundred Time Management seminars throughout the country. To this day there are people who only use one excuse- MY AUNT BESSIE’S COW DIED.

An excuse is a big fat fib. When you and I commit to something and do not do it  we are a Big Fat Fibber.

Here is what to do. When you see the person you fibbed to, stand face to face, have a serious look, take a deep breath  and slowly, firmly say,” You will never guess what happened this time?  Pause two seconds, look them in the eye and say firmly “My Aunt Bessy’s Cow Died”.

Now comes the fun part. Look at the expression on their face for exactly 3 seconds, turn swiftly and the go do what you were supposed to do.

At first, the perfect excuse is allowed once a day, then once a week, then once a month, then once a quarter, then once a year.

Fiber (or roughage) is like sandpaper. It cleans the pipes and tubes in my gut. Fiber is the indigestible part of plant foods that travels through the gut’s  sewer system sewer, absorbing water along the way – wooshing and swooshing as it goes and makes BM go better. Fiber keeps us from getting constipated.

HAVE A HEALTHY HAPPY DAY

GOOD HABITS TAKE TIME

Old habits are hard to break  and switch to good habits. In one of my college classes we talked about habits. All right handers were told to put their pencil in the left hand. Left handers switched to the right hand. Next, we wrote our name on a paper as fast and as neatly as we could. My writing was awful. My name looked Chinese. Now here is the shocker. We graded each other’s paper for the grade to go on our record for the day. Nobody gave an F. No A’s but B’s and C’s.

Bad work was not called bad work. It was “politically correct.

Today we accept bad things as OK. Poor journalism, bad language,  bad food, overuse of harmful drugs, bad behavior, and disobeying law are socially accepted. Hey- it probably has always been that way, we just talk about it more and with social media we can’t hide it or ignore it as much as we did in the past.

Doing what is wrong or doing what is right has been a choice since Adam and Eve ate the apple that was a no-no. In this century of instant data, it is harder to cheat and not get caught and almost impossible to justify doing dumb stupid things and remain socially accepted.

 

It is now official. Cigarettes cause cancer.  Sin Tax is a big source of income so they are “Legal”.  We have the right to choose to have a shorter life span and continue to smoke the dumb things.

Now hang on. Diabetes and some studies do not even narrow it to type 2, is caused mostly by obesity. More studies come out saying a major cause of obesity is too much consumption of sugar drinks. Already some major cities are putting Sin Tax on “soda pop to cash in on the mess.  Remember when you were a kid? No Cigarettes.  Now we are getting the warnings about sugar drinks.  Habits are hard to break.

In 2003 I could feel my health getting worse. I said to me “if you keep on drinking and eating like you are now, where will you be in five years. I will be dead.

” Starting June 12, 2006, my daily walking started. Something else happened. I found my PASSION.

Goggle Passion. It is a strong, almost uncontrollable emotion and feeling. A person becomes driven to fulfill it. My passion is to be healthy and happy. I call it WAFOWASL. I write about it, talk about it, blog about it, study it, ask questions about it, and live it every day.

My training as a public speaker causes me to take complex and complicated subjects and reduce them into simple terms.

We all only need two fuels to keep alive-WATER and FOOD.

Our body needs to perform two functions to stay alive-MOTION and SLEEP. There are too many motion choices and I chose to walk-so

WAFOWASL.

99% of me being smart is knowing what I am dumb at. I only take advice from athletes who are healthy and happy. They “walk the Talk.

If you desire a health happy life, it is worth being passionate about it.

WHEN IT GETS BROKE-FIX IT

 

Things have been rolling on at a pretty good clip  since June 12, 2016. That is the day I started walking, I mean really walking. I have not been sick, and went from weighing 254 and today it is 145. The blood pressure was a scary 204/105. Now that is serious. Today it varies for 94/50 to 130/60. All this is good stuff for an 85-year-old.

 

Image result for clip art weed eaterDuring the last couple years, the cord on my chainsaw got too hard to pull, so I put it in a garage sale. The starting cord on the weed whacker got harder and harder to pull, so Ann started doing the weed whacking. Getting up from sitting got harder and harder. I have lost much of my arm strength plus the ability to stand up after a long “sitting spell”.

Ninety-nine percent of Me being smart is knowing what I am dumb at. That is the easy part. When it comes to my health and wellness I only take advice from those who walk the talk.

One of my main mentors is West Point educated, Ranger trained and battle tested. He is a Hero. This is what he said. “When you can’t get up from going to the toilet, the next stop is the nursing home.”

There is a trainer that has done wonders with our young distant runners. He has coached some of my athlete friends and has been a major part of their transformation.

 He is very good and  very busy. He has worked me in with an evaluation. “This is good because we now know where you are and we can go from there” he said after a complete assessment. The journey is starting with the first step. I will be working on upper body strength and squats. The equipment is state of the art, and it will become a habit, then a routine, and then a discipline and a part of my life. I must walk the walk before I can talk the walk. I thought it would be a lonely journey.

I was handed a brochure and a friend suggested I might want to add this low impact cardiovascular and strength workout as warmup. Did I mention the brochure said this “Forever Fit” workout is for the older adult?

I was shocked when I showed up for the 9:35 AM-10:05 AM warmup. This wild bunch call themselves the RAT PACK. They were laughing, grabbing their dumbbells and were a wild and crazy fun bunch. They greeted me like I am a long-lost cousin. The time flew by.  This bunch were at different levels of skill, and it did not matter. I left that room feeling happy and OK. Every one of the RAT PACK are walking the talk.

The original RAT PACK was at the Sammy Davis Jr last show in Vegas. It started at 10:45PM and finally ended at 7:30 AM. They were from all walks of life and the cared for each other. I saw Sammy Davis JR in that last Vegas show.

The fun bunch went thru 30 minutes of intense exercise and it seemed like 5 minutes.

 My “motion system” needs fixing and those who are smarter than me are getting me fixed.

I am ready to start this new “walk”.
