Spending too many years living slightly beyond my means

Spending too many years living slightly beyond my means. Too much red meat and fat, too much beer. Not enough exercise. Too many books I don’t read. A few weeks off from all of this, and I find that I don’t really care for red meat that much and a soda can be a treat again. A root beer, which I haven’t had in forever, brings back memories of Florida. Or perhaps the beginning of summer brought back Florida, and I always had root beer or cream soda down there. Being an adult who commands a middle-class paycheck means that you can do pretty much anything you wanted to do as a child, but couldn’t. But then, you stop trying to do much of anything. You forget the simple pleasure of riding a bike or running or going to the swimming pool.
