100 Things About Me


I should sue for the insult!
I tire of new stuff quickly.

Case in point, here's a true story about my recently refurbished face.

Standing in line at the movie theatre, I turned to Donna before we proceeded to the cashier's window. I said, "Are you tired of the beard, yet?"

I am.

She, however, said, "No." Then, she walked over to the box office and ordered, "Two for 'Sideways.'"

The guy punched the ticket machine keyboard and demanded, "13 dollars."

Immediately, I looked at Donna and said, "I'm keeping the beard."

There was no conversation whatsoever about me being old enough. In fact, I'm years away from eligibility for their Senior perk. I'm still trying to decide what I wanna be when I grow up.

My feelings were hurt, but only about two dollars and nine cents worth. I was in profit and rolling hard this night. I be a playa!

We went inside and I slapped $4.50 of authentic American currency on the candy counter. Everyone was impressed. I could tell. Not many movie patrons can make the cash down payment on Twizzlers.
