The Drag Is Back!

Quite seriously, I am not a drag! I think I have a wonderful sense of humour, sometimes just stupid...I love slapstick, you know, Three Stooges, Laurel & Hardy and many times, if you watch closely, Fraser. I suggest you check an episode called "Three Valentines". In the first four or five minutes we are treated to David Hyde Pierce in a, well, what I would call a silent movie, as he readies himself for his big date! I won't ruin the incredible preformance, without a single word spoken, that he renders. But, it will make you laugh...I've seen it many times and EVERY time it makes me laugh!

I also enjoy intelligent humour and wit such as is given to us on that same television program.

And I enjoy the humorous irony of life. I, for instance, am in charge of the beer and the wine at my store. If you know me well, you understand.

When Bozo the Clown (or BT Clown as we used to call him in my house) used to say, "Just keep laughing", well, I really didn't get it then. Now I do. And when I was young and people (usually old guys with their wheezing cough and wrinkles upon wrinkles) would say, "See you in the funny papers", I didn't understand. Now I do. I even say that once in a while.

Life may be hard. Life may be your personal scourge. Life may creep up on you and take you away to a place that you will be hard pressed from which to come back.

I rather think that every morning I have an opportunity to do good. To help. To make a difference in this world. I don't always achieve this but my intentions are good. And I will endeavor not to do any harm. It has never been nor will it ever be my intention to hurt another.

With that, I am saddened that I can't be a better person. I am saddened that I can't be what I want to be, AT THIS MOMENT! I am heartened by the fact that I can be better tomorrow.

The NightFly.
