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

Blah Blah Land

“A dreamer is one who can only find his way by moonlight, and his punishment is that he sees the dawn before the rest of the world.”
– Oscar Wilde

I had a wild dream last night; one of those where you wake up fretting and sweating a little and the tangled covers serve as evidence of much tossing and turning.

The late iconic film critic Roger Ebert was standing at the podium at some grand hall.  Roger was introducing me as recipient of the Golden Globes Lifetime Achievement Award for my long list of film criticism awards and accomplishments.

OK, let's take a break.  Rule No. 1:  Please remember, this was a dream.  No. 2:  No giggling.
