Incentive Plans

Years ago, Mom had an acquaintance who was a tiny bit on the portly side. He announced one day (much to Mom's surprise) that he had begun an intense workout regime that consisted of a certain number of pushups and situps, etc. per day; followed by a long run. He also claimed that he hadn't missed a day of this regime in 2 months.

Mom was impressed, but somewhat skeptical due to the fact that the man had apparently GAINED weight since the last time she had seen him.

Never one to be discouraging, she gently admonished him to keep up the good work in his exercise program and then said "Well, I am so proud of you!! I don't even run that much myself. How far do you run everyday?"

"All the way to Krispy Kreme" he responded.
