We Might As Well Laugh

Laughlogo220The first time I was on the cusp of becoming a senior I was anxious and one year away from finishing my high school education.  College and my quest to conquer the world paved the road ahead with all kinds of wild, exciting possibilities; fame, fortune, wooing Ms. Right, etc.

Something else was different back then, although I didn't realize it at the time.  I could read the labels on medicine bottles.

Now, a few decades later, after initially kicking and resisting, I find myself no longer fighting the indisputable fact that I'm the other kind of senior, as in senior citizen. 

I've given up on chasing fame and fortune.  I've even found Ms. Right.  But some pesky problems still remain.

No matter how hard I try, no matter what devices I use, I CANNOT READ THE FINE-PRINT LABELS ON MEDICINE BOTTLES!  It's a conspiracy, I tell you, and the only thing we can do about it and other bumps in the Road of Enjoyment at this stage of life is this:

We might as well laugh.

So, that's what we'll do in my stand-up comedy routine lasting 45 minutes to an hour and aimed at seniors like me ... and, perhaps, you.

There will be only a few movie clips in this presentation.  It's mostly just a healthy dose of hardy laughs about medicine bottles, the people who make them (They obviously hate seniors), the joys and sound blasts of amplified hearing and, of course, the constant desire to offer desperately needed advice to the younger generation like ...

"Pull up your pants!"

Movie Memories Update

Cinematically presential: Take 1 -- Vote for Dave?

Sometimes, and quite frequently this presidential election cycle, I wish politics we see in the movies were real and real-life politics were fictional. 

Or more fictional.

No, make that less fictional, but still something to view simply as entertainment.  There I go again, writing myself into a corner I can't write out of.  But I think you know what I mean.  Not something entertaining, yet serious and, for lack of a better phrase, something we can just get up and walk away from.

Like the incredibly entertaining movie Dave of 1993, for instance.  Kevin Kline, a gifted and all-too-often underrated actor, plays Dave Kovic, a fun-loving temp agency owner who just happens to bear a striking resemblance to U.S. President Bill Mitchell (also portrayed by Kline).
