As a Beacon Hill condo broker, I have been told by my girlfriend many times, “Listen up I have something to tell you …” Today was one of those days.
She said, “The year is coming to an end, have you thought about some New Year’s resolutions?” I responded resoundingly, “No.” She said “I have some resolutions.”
She took out a piece of paper, as she began reading the third entry from her list of resolutions that the grim reality struck: They were resolutions for me.
At first I was thinking about going to my real estate office in Beacon Hill, but once I heard the weather forecast, that thought died, faster than the Patriots playoff season.
My girlfriend who I love (most of the time). She has this theory that if I lose weight I would in return be a better Boston condo seller and a Beacon Hill apartment renter.
So lets jump into our last conversation about, of all things – my diet.
Mona: John have you ever thought about snacking on tinned fish like anchovies and sardines lately (or ever?)
Mona: Did you know they’re one of the healthiest snacks around? You’re missing out on an affordable nutritional powerhouse.
Me: That’s nice.
Mona: Tin fish are packed with omega-3 fatty acids, protein, calcium and vitamin A.
Me: Can you pass me the potato chips.
