Saturday morning I took the kids to the YMCA so they could jump around and climb on things in the kids’ gym while I tried get a little exercise. While I was lumbering along on the treadmill I glanced up at the closed captioning for a report that was showing on CNN. The first thing I saw was that “Popeye Doll Will Young” was nominated for a British music award. It took me a minute to realize that they were referring to the Pop Idol Will Young. I know it’s really quite dumb, but for some reason it made me laugh and almost sent me reeling off the treadmill. Those things are dangerous if half the foot lands on the conveyer belt and the other half lands on the stationary platform.
