conversation with my osteopath

Me: I used to be really Spartan on canoe trips. I wouldn't pack coffee or booze or even too many sweets. I'd eat vegetarian, really healthy balanced meals. I'd paddle 25-30 km a day, including portages. Although it sounds harsh, it was really this very pleasant, simple, sort of purifying experience, and I'd come back about five pounds lighter, you know, rippling with lean muscle, and feel ready to lift a truck off a baby. But a while ago I was introduced to camping with meat, aged bourbon, wine, extravagant desserts.

Michael: And now you're the baby under the truck?

Me: Yes.
