Can I Get That Filled at CVS?

I finished the second stage of my physical (I still have to go back and find out the results), I peed in a cup, they took some blood, lanced some moles and skin tags, you a fun day. My weight came up again, I actually gained 5 pounds in two weeks and the doctor was not happy. Neither was I, but I'm blaming my parents visit on that. They insisted on feeding us, what was I to say; "No mom, I would not like to go to the Carolina Ale House." "Mom and dad I don't want a tasty key lime pie." Also my addiction has started early, I already ate one pie... in 5 days.

The drugs she put me on has made a little bit of a difference, when I wake up I'm not exhausted. Instead, I'm a little groggy from the valerian root or the muscle relaxer. I'm told I need at least 30 minutes a day of walking, then she throws this out there:

Dr C. You just need to get out and walk. Do you have a dog.
Me NO, don't get me started I want a dog, but the install cost for us is too much.
DR. C. Well, you should get a dog, they make you get out and walk.

Did you read that, for medical reasons I need a dog. I couldn't convince my insurance to give me a Wii or a helper monkey, but I might have a chance with a dog. Think about it, if they give us money for a dog, it will help me stay healthy and I will not have future medical problems. See nearly fool proof, now I need to get the doctor to write it on her prescription notepad and then do a little fancy maneuvering with the paper work and BLAM free dog.

Dogs are great. They really do make you get exercise... Just today Drea and I went to Old Man's Cave in the Hocking Hills Region and hiked at least 5 miles.

Good stuff.

Get a dog.
