Girl Blames Inability To Workout On NPR

Last night a girl explained to her friends that she was pulling out of their diet challenge because she'd been prevented from working out by National Public Radio. She went on to explain that the gym where she regularly exercises had been having some sort of problem with their stereo system and the only broadcast available to clients was NPR. She said that on several occasions she had tried to workout and disregard the broadcast but had found it impossible.
Specifically she said she could not concentrate on her heart rate and calories burned while someone was talking about the number of people who had died in Iraq that day.

Hm. All I listen to when I work out at home is NPR. Maybe her inability to concentrate is HER fault, not NPR's. I love you, NPR. ~Dixie

I'm sure her friends understood she she had such a GOOD reason for quitting on the challenge. Damn you, NPR! You've sabotaged a diligent young woman's heartfelt attempt at fitness! Have you no shame?!?

What a shock to her system. She actually had to think about something other than her own personal vanity. Poor, poor, baby, I feel SOOOO much sympathy.
