When I failed to notice him, the Professor raised a hand to his forehead and loudly wailed “Oh, WHAT a CREUL world!” Then he stomped his tiny feet and cried, “WHYYYYYY MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!” Finally, having completed the drawing of a delicious looking broccoli floret, I exclaimed “Oh, Professor Fox, I didn’t know you were here. What a surprise.”
After several minutes of sighing and further hand-wringing, Professor Fox listened as I told him about a book I just read, The Power of Habit, about how our brains create patterns of behavior and how we can decide to change those patterns for our own good.Professor Fox was skeptical of any book that had the taint of self-help, but after bribes and treats, he broke down and read the first half of the third chapter.
Armed with very little information, Professor Fox felt empowered and ready to do the hard work necessary to change his life and be a better Fox! With clear eyes and a firm hand, the professor sat down, took a clear look at all the bad habits that plague his life, and made a list of New Year’s resolutions. Topping the list, no more watching Real Housewives.
Full of purpose, Professor Fox marches boldly out of large rut he’s been in and into a better brighter future. Not only is he giving up watching reality TV, but he’s also going to shed the few extra pounds he’s put on since last year. With his head held high, Professor Fox sits down and turns on The Biggest Looser.
