Unlike most people, local man Ian Pell has persevered with his new year’s resolution to become a healthier, fitter version of himself. The 35-year-old tax advisor has undoubtedly bored his coworkers with his various fitness updates, including membership at an overpriced CrossFit gym, and news that he is training for a number of sadistic activities such as Tough Mudder.
It’s unknown what may have transpired in Ian’s life for him to suddenly feel the need to prove his physical prowess, but the fact he was edging closer and closer to forty may have something to do with it.
However, Ian’s strange new personality quirks reached peak weirdness when our reporter spied a collection of John West tuna in his top cupboard.
“I’ve been buying them every week”, says Ian, “at this point, I don’t even know why.”
“I don’t even like tuna that much.”
“There’s just so many specials on, I feel like I can’t say no.”
His growing collection, colour coordinated by flavour, makes a stark contrast to the rest of cupboard space which remains empty, save for a packet of pasta.
“I keep thinking that maybe I’ll eat one as a snack but I never do”, admits Ian to our reporter, “I don’t even own a can opener.”
More to come.
