Today's AARP Moment (Brought to you by Metamucil!!)
I was watching a "Rowan and Martin's Laugh-In" special on PBS this weekend (yes, I said "PBS." Don't judge me.)
Anyway, my daughter, Valerie, strolled into the room and started watching with me. She couldn't understand why I was laughing. OK, I admit, the humor is a little stupid, but I suppose I like it because it reminded me of my childhood (of course, my childhood included my father-you've already met him-so I guess the blessing was kind of a mixed bag).
In an effort to get her interested in the show, I tried....
Me: "Hey, look! That's Goldie Hawn!"
Me: "Goldie Hawn. You know. The actress? Kurt Russell's girlfriend?"
She: "Huh? I don't know who she is."
Me: (exasperated, sighing). Goldie Hawn? C'mon! Okay, Kate Hudson's mother!"
She: "Ohhhh, yeah, okay, now I know. She looks just like Kate Hudson."
Me: "See? I told you."
She: "This is still stupid. I'm going out for a walk."
I got so depressed that I turned off the show and went upstairs to listen to some Beatles music.
On my iPod.
