Things Aren't As Funny As They Used To Be - OCTOGENARIAN: Those Damn Kids

Things Aren't As Funny As They Used To Be

lester_aldrich_alone.jpg Here it is, another morning that I managed to wake up.  Jesus fucking Christ.  Oh, well...

As I edge toward my 90s, things aren't as funny as they used to be.

It's not as funny when Mrs. Aldrich falls down the steps.  She gets hurt now and I have to get out of my chair to do something about it. 

It's not as funny on the Archie Bunker show when they flush the toilet.  It used to be so funny.  But that was 30 years ago.

It's not as funny when I see Those Damn Kids fall down on their skateboards and break their legs.  There was a time a few years ago when I would laugh for days when that happened.  Now it's just a couple of chuckles and I'm done with it.

Maybe it's this terrible recession and my retirement savings going down the drain - or maybe it's my horrible eyesight and my inability to see the television too clearly - or maybe I'm just dying and that's just not as funny as it used to be.

I'll talk at you next week...
