A compliment

“I see the two of you walking all the time. You both slimmed up tremendous.”

“Thank you!”

We are conspicuous in our walking, because not enough people walk.

A friend of mine spent weeks in rural Britain with two aunts who went in for sweet British food. She came back the same size she left. How? Because, she said, she had to walk between villages every day.

That’s great. There’s a rural legend of sorts that towns in the American midwest are eight miles apart so that carriages could stop and the horses could be watered. I wonder though if eight miles was more for the benefit of those on two legs.
