Higher Level New Years Learning

On New Year’s Eve, Daniel was in no shape to drive, so he sensibly left his van in the car park and walked home.   As he was wobbling along, he was stopped by a policeman.

“What are you doing out here at four o’clock in the morning?” asked the police officer.

“I’m on my way to a lecture,” answered Roger.

“And who on earth, in their right mind, is going to give a lecture at this time on New Year’s Eve?” enquired the constable sarcastically.

“My wife,” slurred Daniel grimly.

2007: I will get my weight down below 180 pounds.
2008: I will follow my new diet religiously until I get below 200 pounds.
2009: I will develop a realistic attitude about my weight.
2010: I will work out 3 days a week.
2011: I will try to drive past a gym at least once a week.
