Just keep moving forward

This Saturday, I participated in and finished my first 5k race. Never mind that I came in second to last. Never mind the sharp pain shooting through my seemingly ever-expanding hips. It felt nice to finish something.

Consider why so many people are unemployed

You throw back the comforter made by Guanzhou Meishi Textile Co. and slip out from under the Egyptian cotton sheets. After brushing your teeth, you dress, putting on a shirt made in Thailand and a tie imported from the U.K. The look is complete with a suit made in Hong Kong. Not wanting to be late, you check the time on your Swiss-made watch as you slip into a pair of Italian loafers.
