The Slice

Spokane and resenting the physically fit

People around here sometimes assume that because of Bloomsday, Hoopfest, et cetera, everyone here admires those who are in great shape.

That's not quite true. I mean, have you ever listened to people who live here?

For one thing, some regard all physically fit individuals as preachy and self-righteous. That's not true, of course. They aren't. But for those couch potatoes who have endured time around shockingly lean exercise evangelists, it can be "guilty until proven innocent" sort of thing.

Sure, some who are not in tip-top shape might be jealous of those who are. But at the same time, those in the former group might argue that there's more to life than calibrating minuscule body-fat.

There's really a pretty simple way to look at this.

You go to your church, I'll go to mine.
