David, inspired by your lead I have again been at my Olympian best in the exercise department.
However, I write not to sing my own praises (others, of course, are welcome, nay, encouraged to do so) but rather to salute you David.
A dinner of Mexican food, if anything like the food I've experienced in Mexico, is very likely indeed to give you such a case of the runs that you'll be forever unable to post in this thread without a blush of shame. Bannister's four minute mile will be as nothing compared to the Purgatory frantic dash. At long last I devine the origin of "Purgatory" your HW handle.
As you sit and imitate a launching space shuttle weep tears of anguish knowing the frantic dash has shot your heart rate into territory that makes you ineligible for continued membership in this elite group.
It's so bad, David, you may as well actually join a gym.
Farewell dear friend, farewell,
