Joe’s morning was not going as well as he’d hoped. Taking a skeptical look at himself in the mirror he instantly thought “I need a renovation—a tuck here, a lift there.” He had been so upset about his appearance he had chosen an alternative to surgery. He wagered a good bit of his fortune on youth gurus and followed their recommendations every day for six months, to such a degree that his wife thought he must be seeing another woman on the side. It occurred to him this morning that what propelled him to seek a lot of these health routines was to improve their relationship, not harm it and cause suspicion. How ironic, he thought, stepped away from his reflection and dressed for work.
