- Take night classes for a year and study during your all of your lunch hours, meaning that
- you never get to the gym any more, so you cancel your membership, while
- you eat lots of lousy salads from Au Bon Pain for dinner during your year of night classes, and
- don't resist the bags of chips placed conveniently near the cash register.
- Then turn 40.
(For the record, two weeks before Thanksgiving is a crappy time to learn you've gained 10 pounds over the last year. Damn.)
