Burning My Superman Card
So I burned my Superman card. It had obviously expired. That meant dealing directly with my body, who I’d so long dismissed as loyal and sub-servient. Fortunately, negotiations have gone well. We have a tentative long term lease agreement for the next 50 years. I have sheepishly accepted its terms with no protestation. During the last 9 months, a trial period, trust building measures have resulted in bilateral de-escalation. Specifically, after I cut alcohol, ate like an angel, and calmed my mind for a few months, my body responded with lower and more stabile morning fasting blood sugar levels.
Life as a mere mortal has been surprisingly good. The pros and cons seem to net out more favorably to the new lifestyle than I had estimated. For example, in this new life I have to make sure I’ve got some almonds and fruit or powerbars in my pack at all times; but, I don’t have to worry about a cooler and beer and ice. I never left home without lugging cold brew in the first term. I’m actually traveling lighter now. And there are other before-and-after zero sum games.
