I was really going to stay retired. I don’t like to work. I’d rather get bailouts. But I went over to Burk’s house one day to borrow some mustard plaster and next thing I know I’d been shanghaied. Locked in the windowless downstairs bedroom with just a TV, bed, toilet, and uncooked frozen dinners slid under the door. O the horror!!!! “American Idol” (Geezus!!) “I’m the Fattest Loser” (Bleeccch!!) “Are You Sexier Than a Fifth Grader”(Rrrretch!!), Howie Long on 50 times in six hours. Endless re-runs of “Mash” … PLEASE GOD, MAKE IT ALL STOP.
