Somehow I've gotten in to my oh-so-embarrassingly couch-potato-y head a notion to take up jogging this spring. I was talking about this to friend Nick not to long ago and he said, "That'd be great! I always like running. We'll run together."
To which I replied, "Well, running might be a strong word. It will probably be more of a leisurely jog."
To which he replied, "Oh, okay. We can stumble along together at a slightly faster rate than usual then."
This morning I emailed two of my neighborhood friends exhorting them to join me in this perhaps ludicrous effort. I told them not to worry, though, and relayed Nick's quip.
To which one of them just replied, "I was going to say: I can do a confident stumble!"
So, there you go. Our modus operandi, our rallying cry, our raison d'etre: to achieve the confident stumble.
