yup... I have to actually use my feet to WALK rather then to rest them on a table. Rubbish
“You heard him… So walk,”

He shuffled through the dictionary and found what he was looking for:

Walk: 1.  intransitive verb move on foot: to move or travel on legs and feet, alternately putting one foot a comfortable distance in front of, or sometimes behind, the other, and usually proceeding at a moderate pace.

When walking, as opposed to running, one of the feet is always in contact with the ground, the one being put down as or before the other is lifted. 

2.  transitive verb travel through place on foot: to travel along or through something on foot
“Ground? One leg before the other? What is this, rocket science?! I don’t understand! It’s too complicated! This – this is theoretically wrong! It can’t be! I’d rather die than try to… walk?” He looked desperate trying to understand what “Walk” means.

“Do you hear yourself? Walking! Just do it?!” He ordered him.

“Do you even KNOW what ‘walk’ means! Well, let me refresh your memory on what the horror is: Walk: 1.  intransitive verb move on foot: to move or travel on legs and feet, alternately putting one foot a comfortable distance in front of, or sometimes behind, the other, and usually proceeding at a moderate pace.

When walking, as opposed to running, one of the feet is always in contact with the ground, the one being put down as or before the other is lifted.

2.  transitive verb travel through place on foot: to travel along or through something on foot,”
“Oh I see… I see… I feel you now,”

You could barely see his face light up from the fat that covers it, “Really?! You understand now! Oh thank you! I mean, why would I put such effort on ‘walking’ if I know I’ll die of exhaustion just trying to walk using those “sticks” of mine.”

“So… you’d rather die on a couch, then live if you walk just a step?” His eye brows were raised.

“Know what Steve… I really don’t know if this is a trick question… so I’ll try my best… No?”

His eyebrows went down sulkily. “Steve, you lazy/dumb assed 31 year old! Stand up! Stand up and walk you cry baby!”

Steve whimpered, “but I don’t wanna walk! It’s hard!”

“You didn’t even TRY it to know if it’s hard!”

“Well did you see what the dictionary said?”

“Yes Steve—I did see what it sai----”

“Walk: 1.  intransitive verb move on foot: to move or travel on legs and feet, alternately putting one foot a comfortable distance in front of, or sometimes behind, the other, and usually proceeding at a moderate pace.

When walking, as opposed to running, one of the feet is always in contact with the ground, the one being put down as or before the other is lifted.

2.  transitive verb travel through place on foot: to travel along or through something on foot”
“GOD?! Why did you just explain it again? That’s it I had enough!” He started pulling Steve out of his couch! He pulled and pulled but gravity was stronger! As he pulled, Steve whimpered and cried out for mercy himself…

“Steve… STEVE?! Are you talking to yourself?” Steve’s wife looked worriedly over to wear her husband was wrestling himself.

“Um—actually… I was just going to watch some more TV.”

The wife sighed, and reminded him: “Don’t forget your medicine! You must walk!”

“Honey, have you read lately what ‘walk’ means?”

“No Steve, but I heard you say it to yourself quite some numerous times,” She giggled as she strolled away thinking it was a joke.

“Sweet heart,” he cried for her. She turned around, not expecting a thing…

“How about a refreshment of memory…”

She looked confused… “Excuse m--”
