Elly versus exercise.

As we all know, Elly is not a fan of physical fitness. The closest thing she does that could be exercise is fitfully jogging along with Connie to the Tim Hortons' every other day or so. After wheezing, gasping and complaining about the cruel torment of having to run about five or six blocks, she rewards herself for enduring such brutal punishment by loading up on muffins and coffee. This hated of organized physical activity was one of the reasons John wanted to buy the Tiny Train House; he was sick, you see, of listening to Elly gasping for breath after walking a flight of stairs and thought that a bungalow was the way to go. This, or course, stems from a phenomenon trumanf noticed: Lynn's rather rigid definition of gender roles. In her weird fantasy bubble, women do not perform strenuous physical exercise unless they want to make themselves desirable for a man. Since Elly is taken, exercise is quite simply pointless.
