living mindfully

You've heard of eating mindfully? That's the thing where you eat v-e-r-y   s--l--o--w--l--y and savor each mouthful until you attain nirvana! as opposed to snarfing everything down asquicklyaspossiblesinceit'sbasicallyfuelandyouneeditnow.
   Well, sadly, there are a lot of other things you can do mindfully, and I am having to do them.
    I'm walking mindfully, for instance, since I sprained my ankle on my way to the dentist yesterday morning. So now I have to hobble mindfully, careful to put as little weight as possible on my foot and try not to twist it (which means I have to sleep mindfully, too, which I try to do anyway because of dreams like the one the other night that I was on the campaign trail with Mitt Romney and he tried to write my lede, which is enough to make anyone thrash around).
     Then once I got to the dentist he told me I needed a root canal and another crown next to the wisdom tooth he pulled, so I am now chewing mindfully also.
    Are we almost at nirvana yet?

So sorry for your problems, C, but D.R. is right...this is hilariously written.
