A man goes into his son's room to wish him goodnight. His son is having a nightmare; the man wakes him and asks his son if he is okay. The son replies he is scared because he dreamed that Aunt Lisa had died. The father assures the son that Aunt Lisa is fine and sends him to bed. The next day, Aunt Lisa dies. One week later, the man again goes into his son's room to wish him goodnight. His son is having another nightmare; the man again wakes his son. The son this time says that he had dreamed that his grandfather had died. The father assures the son that his grandfather is fine and sends him to bed. The next day, the grandfather dies. One week later, the man again goes into his son's room to wish him goodnight. His son is having another nightmare; the man again wakes his son. The son this time says that he had dreamed that dad had died. The father assures the son that he is okay and sends the boy to bed. The man goes to bed but cannot sleep because he is so terrified. The next day, the man is scared for his life -- he is sure he's going to die. After dressing he drives very cautiously to work. He doesn't eat lunch because he is scared of choking. He avoids everyone because he's sure he will somehow be killed. He jumps at every noise and hides for most of the day under his desk. Upon walking in his front door at the end of the day, he see his wife. "Good God, Dear," he proclaims, "I've just had the worst day of my entire life!" She responds, "You think your day was bad, the UPS man dropped dead on the doorstep this morning."

We’re in this lull between the summer cookout season and the great glutton holidays of Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s. So if you’d like to drop a few pounds before it’s time to pack them back on, try one of these tricks.
Have Dessert For Breakfast
If you're going to have a treat, then you may want to make it that muffin that's calling your name in the pastry case Monday morning. A study in overweight people who had lost weight on a diet found that those who ate a larger breakfast that also included a sweet treat kept off more weight than those who ate a smaller breakfast with no treat, in part because the sugary treat they ate at breakfast time helped curb sweet cravings later in the day.
Cut Up Your Food
You may think you look silly cutting your food into tiny pieces, but the strategy may just work. A study found that cutting up your food may help trick your brain into thinking there's more on the plate, which can translate into eating less while still feeling satisfied.
Exercise in the Morning
Finding time to exercise no matter what time of day is important, but if you need that little extra push when it comes to burning calories, then try exercising in the morning. Studies have found that people who exercise in the morning work out harder than those who exercise at other times in the day.
Drink Warm Water
A glass of ice-cold water may be more refreshing, but if you want to lose weight, then you may want to switch to warm water. Recent research found that drinking a glass of warm water before a meal helps you feel fuller more quickly, so you may end up eating less food during your meal.
Eat More (Often)
It may seem counter-intuitive, but it can be true: eating more and more often can help you lose weight. Eating frequent meals — about five or six in a day — can boost your metabolism, and eating larger volumes of healthier foods that are full of lean protein, fiber, and other nutrients — rather than foods high in refined carbs and processed ingredients — helps give you energy and keep you full without all the calories.
