Summit Up

Good morning and welcome to Summit Up, the world’s only daily column feeling so relaxed, we’re in danger of drooling on our keyboard.

It could have something to do with the weekend we took in the middle of the week. We recommend you try it sometime. Just work right through your weekend (if you’re like us, you’re weekend isn’t the Saturday-Sunday stuff of folks in Normalville), then take two days off later, in the middle of the next week. It’s sort of a Twilight Zone-meets-National Lampoon’s Vacation kind of effect, if you do it right.

Us, we went to Steamboat and soaked our weary bones, then had some hippie dude bang on ’em and twist the muscles all around ’em. You know you’re relaxed when you start forgetting certain parts of your body – you know, your legs, your arms – are actually connected to the rest of you. There should probably be some sort of criminal charge having to do with driving after a massage.

INMATE A: You get busted for DUI, man?

INMATE B: No, man, DAM.


INMATE B: Yeah, man, driving after a massage. The hot springs made my eyes all red, and then when the cop had me doing the heel-to-toe walk, I fell over, ’cause the dude at the springs was doing reiki on my feet.

Or we could be so relaxed because of the advice Dan sent us:

“By following the simple advice I read in an article, I have finally found inner peace … It reads: “The way to achieve inner peace is to finish all the things you’ve started.’ I looked around to see all the things I started and hadn’t finished. So, today I have finished one bottle of white wine, a bottle of red wine, a bottle of Baileys, my Prozac, a large box of chocolates and a quart of beer. You have no idea how good I feel.”

Take your pick, we guess.


Mark wanted to send more than a Happy Anniversary! wish. He said his wife, Rebecca Jeche, has done enough to deserve an Angel Alert!! It’s their first anniversary, and Mark says it hasn’t been an easy year.

So, here’s to both of you!

We’re out … finishing what we started.
