Are you a couch potato?

Hello everyone, how are you doing today? Is everything ok? I hope so! Well, tell me: are you a couch potato? What!? You don’t know what a couch potato is? Ok! so let me teach you that one. I’ll teach it in three different levels: basic, intermediate and advanced.

First, the Advanced:

A couch potato is a person who spends leisure time passively or idly sitting around, especially watching TV. They don’t get involved in any kind of strenuous exercise. As a matter of fact, they can’t stand any kind of physical activity. What’s more, they rarely eat healthy, nourishing food; they’d rather have hamburgers, fries, soft drinks and that kind of stuff.

Now, the Intermediate

Couch PotatoA couch potato is a person who spends too much time watching television. He doesn’t do any exercise at all. Actually, he hates exercising. He prefers to sit or lie on a couch watching their favorite TV programs. Another thing he doesn’t like is healthy food. A real couch potato prefers junk food such as hamburgers, fries, soft drinks and so on.

Finally, the Basic

A couch potato is a very lazy person. A couch potato likes to watch TV a lot. A couch potato doesn’t like to exercise. A couch potato likes to have hamburgers, fries, soft drinks, etc.

So, did you get it? Could you understand what a couch potato is? Are you a couch potato? Are you a basic, an intermediate or an advanced couch potato? Is there any couch potato in your family? Do you have a friend who is a real couch potato? Tell me a little bit about your couch-potato experience!

See you… Have a nice day!
