You are not going to be happy to hear this, but, we are going to have to spend a little less time together. I know, I know—we have had some awesome times together and you have definitely made the lowest of times a bit more bearable. However, my buddy Gym, AKA “The Gym” has been around a lot longer than you have and misses the friendship we once had. Plus, we are partnering up on this Marathon thing for next spring and, quite frankly, I need to put more time into this new venture. I hope you understand. We can still hang out, but it will have to be once a week at the most. Sorry. It’s not you. It’s me. I just made a commitment to the Marathon team, stamped by my credit card, and promised to help raise money for the sick (at least $5K), so this is how it has to be.
Now don’t be offended. You are not alone. Not only is Vodka also out, but so is the Simple Carbohydrates crew and possibly the Diet Soda posse ( The “caffeinated” peeps are arguing a performance enhancement benefit, but the jury is still out at this point). Look, we can still kick it, but as I said before, from now on it will have to be once a week at the most, and only on the weekends. I’m sure this is a blow to you and the rest of the vino family, but at the end of the day, it’s for the best. And, we’ll still have a blast together —just not as often. So let’s enjoy our last night together kicking it “old-school” and I’ll see you again in a week or two.
All the best,
