It was time for Eldon’s yearly physical. During the physical examination, the doctor asked Eldon about his physical-activity level.
Eldon said he spent three days a week exercising outdoors, every week. “Yesterday afternoon was typical; I took a five-hour walk through some pretty rough terrain. I waded along the edge of a lake. I whacked my way through about a mile of brambles. I avoided standing on a snake, and I climbed several rocky hills.”
“I took a few leaks behind some big trees. I ran away from an angry mother bear, and then ran away from an equally-angry bull elk.”
“The mental stress of it all left me drained and shattered. At the end, I drank nine beers and a tall glass of Tequila.”
Amazed by the story, the doctor said, “You must be one hell of an outdoorsman!”
“Nope,” Eldon replied, “I’m just a really bad golfer.”
