STEVE： I'm going over to the gym. I want to do some running.
JOSEPH： Why don't you run outside？
STEVE： Are you kidding？ Do you know how cold it is today？
JOSEPH： Yeah， I suppose. I guess it isn't healthy to run in this weather.
STEVE： No， it's not. Not at all. I'd probably freeze my lungs.
JOSEPH： Wait for me a minute. I'll go over to the gym too.
JOSEPH： Yes， why not？ Just let me get my gym clothes together.
STEVE： I didn't know you could exercise.
JOSEPH： What do you mean by that？ Everyone can exercise！
STEVE： Yeah， I know. But you？
I always thought you were only good at lifting beer bottles to your mouth.
JOSEPH： No， not at all. I was on the swimming team in high school.
And I'd like to do some weight training. They have decent equipment at that gym.
STEVE： You're going to lift weights？ Hah！
JOSEPH： Are you laughing at me？
STEVE： I'm sorry. I just can't imagine you lifting weights.
JOSEPH： Maybe not. But I want to start. I need to get in shape.
I feel these past couple months that my energy is low.
STEVE： It's true. If a person doesn't exercise， they get sluggish.
That's why I keep running. Even in the winter.
JOSEPH： So I need to do something too.
STEVE： But lifting weights isn't the best thing.
You should do some kind of aerobic exercise.
JOSEPH： I know. But I want to start today with a little weight lifting.
Then I'm going to buy a new swimming suit and goggles，
and every other day I'm going to go swim laps in the pool. How does that sound？
STEVE： It sounds like a good plan to me. I'm still…… I mean……
STEVE： I'm still just surprised you really want to do it.
It doesn't seem to go with your character.
JOSEPH： Well， if that's true， then maybe I need to change my character， don't I？
I don't want to become a fat slob.
