Go to the gym

Guilt: It’s 3 o’clock.

Bruno: So?

Guilt: So, the gym closes at 5?

Bruno: So?

Guilt: So you should be on your way already.

Bruno: What’s that? I should???

Guilt: Yes, because if you don’t you’re gonna feel guilty later today, and if you don’t get yourself tired you won’t be able to sleep well tonight.

Bruno: F***k that s***t, I’ll sleep anyway.

Guilt: No you won’t and you know it.

Bruno: Well, I’m not going anywhere.

Guilt: So why on earth did you spend so much time understanding how exercise works, how it affects your mood and what effects it has on your body if now you won’t want to go to the gym? Why do you spend so much time learning what foods are good for you, which aren’t, how are they digested, which gives you the best nutrients, if you’re not gonna eat them later? Why do you spend time understanding the political and socio-economical institutions if you’re not gonna try to make them better? You need to walk the talk, exercise makes us happy and you know it, no “but”, get dressed, go to the gym, and think about what I said.

Bruno: Who do you think you are?

Guilt: I’m the logical part of you, the one that will come up with logical arguments to convince you to always do the right thing for the right reasons. No excuses.

Bruno: So damn arrogant, well guess what logic, I don’t care. I’m gonna stay home and learn every single one of Asuka’s 10 hit combos in Tekken dark resurrection.

Guilt: That’s ridiculous, you have Tekken 6, why would you play dark resurrection?

Bruno: Just to piss you off, that’s why.

Guilt: It’s 3.10 you better get going.

Bruno: I have a headache.

Guilt: No, you don’t.

Bruno: I’m still tired from yesterday.

Guilt: You’re not.

Bruno: It looks like it’s gonna rain.

Guilt: It doesn’t.

Bruno: I have things to do tomorrow morning.

Guilt: You don’t.

Bruno: Ok, how about this: I’ll just exercise at home for 1 hour, right here right now, and you leave me alone.

Guilt: Work out at home for 2 hours, 30 minutes of yoga, 30 minutes of stretching, then go for a walk for 1 hour and you’re free.

Bruno: 1 hour exercise, 15 minutes stretching, walk around the block and I’m done with this s**t. I’ll even throw in some documentaries after the walk.

Guilt: 1 hour exercise, 30 minutes stretching, 30 minutes meditation, then go for a walk for as long as you want and you’re off the hook.

Bruno: Deal.

Guilt: Deal.
