Deep Thoughts (While Avoiding Weekend Chores)

Presentation1Young Codger
  • Old codgers are grumpy, eccentric old men. But there are quite a few young codgers out there, too.

  • To eat humble pie means to apologize for something you were wrong about. So, when you brag are you eating proud pie?

  • Short-shrift means to ignore or curtly dismiss someone, and it’s all the rage these days. Let’s buck the trend and start giving people tall-shrift.

  • I was hired for a tourism ad (true). They asked me to wear “a fashion-forward Hawaiian shirt.” “I can’t,” I told them, “that’s an oxymoron.”

  • There’s a rain cloud outside that’s been threatening to “go” for the last hour. I suspect it has prostate issues.

  • I’m planning on writing a memoir, but am unsure how far back to begin it. I’m thinking of calling Chapter One The Happy Little Zygote.

  • If you inherited 50 million dollars, what would you not stop doing?
