"How Internet Marketing Made Me 'Drop-Dead' Gorgeous!"
"Those who know their minds do not necessarily know
their hearts." La Rochefoucauld
Internet marketing fascinates me. It fascinates me so
much that I am at the computer 12 hours a day.
However, after a few months I noticed that my posterior
was beginning to spread out and fit the contours of my
desk chair a bit too comfortably. I was getting very
pale and for the first time became aware that gray was
now my natural hair color.
Action was needed and this is what I did:
• Because I was getting up at 4 a.m. to be able to
spend 12 hours a day on the computer, I found that I
was getting hungrier during the day. But instead of
eating Fritos, I started having boiled eggs and apples
as snacks. I quit putting chips on my grocery list. My
husband complained about not having munchies in the
house. I told him if he wanted them that much, he
could buy them himself.
• Because I was getting up earlier in the morning to
spend 12 hours a day at the computer, I started eating
my dinner earlier in the evening. That meant my husband
and I no longer had dinner together. He started
bellyaching that there wasn't anything prepared for him
when he got home from work. I told him it was about
time he learned how to cook.
• Because I was spending 12 hours a day sitting in
front of the computer, I decided I needed to spend at
least half an hour on the exercise bike. So I got it
out of the garage and set it up in the living room so
that I could listen to the stereo while I exercised.
My husband objected about having to look at it while he
watched TV. I told him that was too bad and HE could
use some exercise himself.
• Living in Florida, I've always had a tan and I like
having some color. But because I was spending 12 hours
a day on the computer, I didn't have time to spend in
the pool. So I started using self-tanning lotion. My
husband grumbled that he didn't like having to smell it
at night. I told him he could sleep in the spare
bedroom if it bothered him that much.
• Sitting in front of the computer for 12 hours a day,
I was smoking cigarette after cigarette. By the end of
the day I could barely breathe; my lungs felt so heavy
and congested. I decided I would have to give up
smoking. Of course, nicotine withdrawal made me
v-e-r-y irritable. My husband said he wished I would
start smoking again because I was so miserable to be
around. I told him to go to #&*%!!!
• With the money I made from my e-business, I got an
expensive new hair style, bought a new wardrobe (in a
much smaller size), traded in my glasses for contacts
and had just "a little bit" of plastic surgery done on
my eyes. My husband griped that we could have used
that money to fix up the house. I told him I was the
one sitting in front of the computer 12 hours a day and
I would spend my money as I pleased.
Now months later I'm thin, toned and tanned; I look and
feel "drop-dead" gorgeous. Of course, no one has
noticed because I spend 12 hours a day in front of the
P.S. My only regret is that my husband is not here to
see the "new me." He left me seven months ago...
