Anne-with-an-e and I were talking about Downton and she said, "Y'know, if we came up with a Downton Abbey workout game, we'd be in shape in no time. For example, 'Mary is mean to Edith: Five jumping jacks.'"
She kept going, and I said, "You have to write this down."
I now have a blog post for today.
So. Here's your workout. Enjoy the show, and, hey, you've never felt so invigorated!
Mary is mean to Edith: 5 jumping jacks
Thomas gives someone an evil look: 4 push-ups
Robert is a jerk: 5 sit-ups
The music reminds us to worry: 1 lap around the room
Mr. Bates is suspected of a crime: 6 crunches
Edith looks wistful: Touch toes
Miss Bunting offends someone: Jog in place
Thomas does something sad, yet also stupid: 10 deep knee bends
