Awesome Bobism

This latest email from my dad, who recently declared Operation Slim Down (OSD) a complete success. The way he sees it, the weight he isn’t gaining should be counted as weight that he has lost.

Anyway, here’s his latest:

I’m going to start this exercise tonight.
 Begin by standing on a comfortable surface, where you have
 plenty of room at each side. With a 5-lb potato sack in each hand, extend
 your arms straight out from your sides and hold them there as long as
 you can. Try  to reach a full minute, and then relax. Each day you’ll
 find that you can hold this position for just a bit longer
After a couple of weeks, move up to 10-lb potato sacks.
Then try 50-lb potato sacks and then eventually try to get
to where you can lift a 100-lb potato sack in each hand and hold your
arms straight for more than a full minute. (I’m at this level.)

After you feel confident at that level, put a potato in
each sack.
