We Can Rebuild Him

Now we know poor old Ben is a bit of recurring theme on Karmarama Stories, but he creates such great ... copy. The latest is a growing realisation that, slowly but surely, Ben is rebuilding himself. Whether it's a mid-life crises, a middle-class crises, or he's watched too many episode of 10 Years Younger, were not sure. But in the last month Ben has:
Had his teeth done.
Is having his eyes lazered.
Has had his back seen to.
Has had his colon evacuated (a rumour, as yet without evidence - we're checking stool samples as we write).
Has had extensive physio.
Has had acupuncture.
Has started swimming.
Has started cycling to work.
Is wearing jeans with expensive holes in them.
So, it's either that the poor lad is coming apart at the seams like a Cabbage Patch Doll, or the US have started their Universal Soldier program and our Ben is somewhere between Steve Austin and Dolph Lundgren. If you see him around town, chances are he'll either be moving very fast indeed, or will be on his way to some strange alternative therapist. Wave when you see him, he may look a bit different next time.
