  • I work with a bunch of losers. Currently, they're vying for the title of the Biggest Loser.

    Based on the reality TV show, The Biggest Loser, some of my co-workers decided to form teams and challenge each other to see who can lose the most weight (percentage, not total pounds) in eight weeks.

    They paid $5 per person to enter the challenge and agreed to weigh in weekly. The team that loses the least or any team that gains weight has to pay a $2 fine. At the end of the eight weeks, the winners get all the money in the pot.

    Thus, the biggest winner is the biggest loser.

  • Isn't it so like God to ruin a good bout of cynicism? For a few months I've been down on religion. Very bah humbug and all, struggling to get to church on time, or at all for that matter.

    Most often, I'd detour into Wal-Mart and dawdle in the shampoo or office supply aisle. Then I'd get to church late and sit not in my usual place in the front but way in the back off to the side where I'd hope to be invisible.

    The problem is the people at my church are all so dang friendly that it's difficult to not reciprocate. But I'd give it my best shot.
