Dream Job – AVAILABLE
So, it’s official. At 92 years old, Andy Rooney is stepping down from CBS’s 60 Minutes. On Sunday’s program, he will deliver his 1097th and last “essay.” My dream job is now open for business. SCORE!
Mr. Rooney has been spitting “duh” and “that annoys me, too” and “I always say that!!!” on 60 Minutes since 1978. Let’s face it, he is the original Jerry Seinfeld. Or maybe the very first blogger (minus the technology).
Check out young Andy vs. current Andy below.
Yes, apparently, he’s always had those eyebrows. (1st pic via here.)
Watch one of my fav videos of Andy waxing poetic wisdom about…well, sleep.
I’m telling you…we’re soul sisters.
When I take over his job (I’m not assuming, I’m just confident), I am gonna get to discussing the following very important issues eh-ehs-eh-p (don’t touch it – ©):– Al Roker → real meteorologist or pretend? Credentials, please! – All of those cars at the gas station → Where are all of those people, because there’s only one person inside! – Chick-fil-A restaurants → Why aren’t there a gazillion in every single state? City, even? Seriously…why?! – Cigarettes → Do people seriously still smoke ’em? For rizzle?! – 4-day work weeks → Discuss! – Hair length → When does it go from appropriate to inappropriate for a woman to have long hair? I need to investigate the cut off date (pun intended).
And THAT is just where I’d start. Geesh – now I’m annoyed and want to know those answers!!!
If When I become the next Andy Rooney, what serious topics would you like for me to discuss?!
Is it the weekend yet?
Friday night we’re going downtown for dinner (location: TBD) and some hanging out, Saturday we’ll probably hit Westbrook Brewing, and who knows what else the weekend will bring?
Whatcha got goin’ on?
p.s. Anyone count how many times Andy Rooney said “sleep” in that video. I had all intentions of counting, but got distracted after #15 (damn, Bravo Network). I’m thinking he made it to at least 30.
