I love my job as a fitness instructor. When I was younger, I would get up early to watch Denise Austin “pump it up” on ESPN. Occasionally I would even do the workouts along with her.

Fourth of July came in at No. 2 mostly because it’s also my birthday. Halloween and Easter tied for third. Thanksgiving fell somewhere between Valentine’s Day and Labor Day — in other words, I hated it. Forced to dress up, smile, and pretend to like Grandma’s “gourmet” asparagus side was a lot of fuss for little payoff ...
