I believe that there are a certain number of pounds to go around and when that gets tight the pound-gods issue more pounds, kind of like the government did, releasing new money. (And how did the government get the money into the system, I'm wondering. None of it showed up in my band account.)
Anyway, back to the pounds. My friend has lost eight. I've gained eight. As much as I'm thrilled with her loss--and I really am, I am not thrilled to see it show up on me.
If anyone knows how this works please let me know. It's one of the things that keep me awake in the dark of night.
While looking for a photo to go with this post I came upon this: "Fat people are harder to kidnap."
Now you can rest easy. Unless you've lost eight pounds, then you better be a good runner.
