Carry On

Yup, as I say in this week’s Dustinland comic, as a parent, you have to carry a lot of stuff. What I didn’t mention was that you have no time to do any other sort of physical activity but that, unless you’re one of those people who can somehow can fit it into some super early morning routine. So that body you see at the end, that’s about what you get. Your arms stay strong from constant lifting. Your lower back gets a good workout too, although perhaps too good, and it may all backfire and start hurting. And your shoulders might hurt too. And your joints. And all of you. It’s called getting old. Thankfully I am a super skinny little twerp so the dad gut hasn’t hit me yet. But man, any non-arm muscle I put on in the years leading up to baby time has vanished. Good times.
