With my mid-life crisis firmly behind me (or is it, see the attached photo - this is what I hope will be my next car), I thought I would share this little bit of wisdom from Canadian comedian Red Green. I always thought his show was the most stupid thing in the world (and believe me, ALL females feel that way about him), but as I hit middle age it all started to become a lot funnier and be much more relevant. As I slowly move on into grumpy old age I thought I would share with you one of his bits that always makes me smile:
MAN SHE LOOKS GOOD
I was in a golf tournament recently and I couln't help noticing that the young lady in the refreshment cart was significantly under-dressed. I'm not complaining, I'm just saying I didn't know where to look. Well actually I did know where to look, I just didn't think I could get away with it.
I understand that people dress that way to attract the attention of the opposite sex, especially in their own age group. But this was a golf tournament made up of mostly old guys like myself so I figure her outfit was mainly a marketing ploy. And it was working. She was doing a brisk business and her tip jar was just one more thing about here that was full to overflowing.
There were no victims here, so I decided to feel good about it. I'm going to treat it as a medical check-up. If I can look at a beautiful young woman and have an emotional response, that means my body is still working. And if I can do that without in any way thinking she might find me attractive, that means my brain must be okay too.
