I Ran Two Miles Today

I Ran Two Miles Today By Elton Camp Being too fat I really do despise One solution is plenty of exercise I’m proud to be able to say I did rather well with it today A sudden inspiration I got Started running on the spot Nothing would make me slow down I zipped across sidewalk and ground I had a goal that I wanted to meet And wasn’t going to take defeat As the goal I drew near Onlookers began to cheer “Go chubby,” one called out “Onward! another did shout I kept running until I was ready to drop That ice cream truck was hard to stop

It is good to laugh and your wit was icing on the cake, chocolate syrup on the brownie, caramel on the app .. . well what I am trying to say -- it was very good! Ice cream is one of the five food groups in our house!!

So very humorous my dear friend Elton! I chuckled more so when my eyes read your last two lines. Lol...very good, hope you didn't yield to that so tempting ice cream, after all that workout that would have been such a waste. A 7 for me! ;) Love and hugs! xxxx D.
