Reflections on Visiting #Colorado

Last week I went to Colorado Springs to attend my grandson’s high school graduation and my oldest son’s retirement from the Air Force. I have a couple of observations.

I never saw a calorically challenged person there. The only time I saw a fat person was when I looked in the mirror. Everyone was jogging, biking, walking or working out. It’s the most physically fit state in the USA. I found it hard to believe until I figured it out. The parking spaces are very narrow, so narrow that a heavy person would not be able to get out of their car once parked. I don’t think it’s an accident. Calorically challenged people either starve to death trapped in their car or leave the state. I actually saw a heavy-set person approach a parking space, put his car in neutral and push it into the slot.

The second observation is Colorado has the longest stops lights in the nation. I’m certain I saw two people on different occasions who had died and slumped over the steering wheel. They are so long that I decided to start writing my next novel while waiting for the light to change. I wrote three chapters in one week.

  1. Monte, too funny. Ironically my son just took a job outside of Denver – while we were experiencing sweltering 1st summer heat here, he was snowboarding with abandon the day before the start of his new job. Congrats to you on the joys your children and grands have brought. 🙂 gwen
