Picture it. I arrive home after a long day and look down at my pedometer to read, "9,320" steps. What? I need 10,000!!! Now, let the jogging in place while I brush my teeth begin! This of course opens the doorway to jog in place while I pack my gym bag as well. These two activities only add another few hundred steps, so it's at this point I decide to run circles around my living room. Did I mention that it was after eleven o'clock, at night? Said circular running activity of course leads my two cats to scatter to the dining room and look on from afar, assessing that I've obviously gotten into their catnip. After twenty laps or so, I go back to the bedroom and jog in place while unmaking the bed (yes, I actually make mine, most days!) and upon finally looking down see the magic number, "10, 020". YES! Mission accomplished! Hopefully there's no permanent damage to the neighbor or my cats!
