Mo' Time, Mo' Problems - My latest humor column
My latest column is out. Here's a little of it - go read it all! So we have all kinds of time now that the kids are at college. The question is, what do we do with it? The answer is: try being adults again. The problem: everything about being an adult has changed in the last 20 years.
TV is different. Stacy and I are watching more shows together (Not The Bachelor. I tried. I can’t.), and there are amazing choices out there. But when did “original series” turn into “soft porn”? I can’t imagine being a serious actress these days – what is required in terms of on-screen sex stuff would have scandalized society a few years back. Remember, years ago, when Hill Street Blues got all edgy and showed a guy’s butt? Now if that’s all we see we want our cable subscription money refunded.
Although since we started watching Outlander, Stacy has begun talking about taking a trip to Scotland. Alone.
