So you’re on vacation and you’re pigging out. No one is regulating you, no one is telling you to “slow down,” ‘cos, well hey, it’s a vacation!! That lunchtime you cannot resist that platter of shrimp served up in a tasty-looking, but unidentifiable sauce. By dinnertime, you are regretting that rash decision, but the damage is done. The poisonous juices in your stomach are threatening all manner of pain to come. It is not a happy night. All hell breaks loose. The vacation is suddenly a disaster, you have to cancel all the fun stuff you had planned, you are purging yourself of anything you’ve eaten for the last few days. You feel like you are going to die, BUT the one good thing about all this is….you’ve lost a lot of weight. Soon, the rest of the family are pitching in:breakfast in bed, giving you sole control of the remote – hey, you’re Dad, you’re too important to the family to be sick in bed for long. Soon, you’re feeling a lot better. In fact you’re feeling better than before. You’re not carrying around so much weight!! In fact you’re going to try to keep that weight off! After all, you have more energy, you play tennis better, you like the way you look in those speedos. ” I can definitely live with this!” you think to yourself. So here you are, having the time of your life for the next few days of the vacation, feeling healthier than ever with no intention of eating like you used to.
That’s the disconnect between this “healthy” economy with record corporate profits and the entrenched and stagnant job market. These corporations are enjoying the trillions of dollars they have made in the last year or so. So what if everyone has had to take on the work of three people and the”fat” has had to be trimmed. Clearly it’s economically viable the way it is, so who wants to start hiring again and spending all that cash? With my new dynamic and streamlined physique I am going to Disneyland!!!
…so remember my friends, Only Connect!
