Mr. Johnson was overweight, so his doctor put him on a diet. He said, “I want you to eat regularly for two days, then skip a day, and repeat this procedure for two weeks. The next time I see you, you should have lost at least five pounds.”
When Mr. Johnson returned, he shocked the doctor by having dropped twenty-five pounds. “That’s incredible!” the doctor told him. “You did this just by following my instructions?”
The slimmed-down Mr. Johnson nodded. “I’ll tell you, though, I thought I was going to drop dead that third day.”
“From hunger, you mean?”
“No,” replied Mr. Johnson, “from skipping.”

Have a happy New Year!
