As in couch Potato. And I'm not just a single Potato, I'm a whole bag full of Potatoes. A 10 pound bag. You know, watching Archie Bunker sit in his chair and just vegetate . . . well, I used to think he was just a big fat lazy slob. But, I get it now. I totally get it. Maybe I'M just a big fat lazy slob. But I understand the whole attraction to that chair . . . or, in my case, my corner of the couch. Yes, I have my own corner. And if you dare to sit in it, you will get the eye. The evil eye.
But, lately I've been thinking that I should get up off my little corner of the couch every once in a while. Move. I'm not a big fat lazy slob. Well, lazy sometimes . . . a little. But after working all day long, my favorite thing to do when I get home is . . . nothing.
There really is nothing redeemable about being a couch bag of Potatoes.
So, I will try to change my mindset. I will sit less. Move more. Little steps. I will first become a 5 pound bag, instead of a 10 pound bag. Then I will not be a bag at all. Just a Potato. Then a single french fry. Maybe that will lead me to become an asparagus.
