Ten Better Things

Rather than watch Trump bloviate in front of Congress tonight, here’s a list of things you can do instead.

  1. Read a book.
  2. Clean out the grease trap in the kitchen sink.
  3. Get a parakeet.
  4. Give that parakeet a karma transplant.
  5. Give a bath to a bobcat.
  6. Binge-watch “My Mother the Car.”
  7. Teach your children the theme song from “Gilligan’s Island.”
  8. Count the number of meals served on “Downton Abbey.”
  9. Dive headfirst into your own vomit.
  10. Run up an alley and holler “fish!”

All of these will be more enlightening.

  1. Well, I already have three parakeets and luckily tonight is bowling league…..you’d have to tie me down and drug me before I’d watch it anyway.

  2. Fortunately we have “Finding Your Roots” on PBS at 8:00. Tonight S. Epatha Merkerson looks for her ancestors. Always loved her on L&O. I might check in on the Democrats’ response, though. That should be around the time Roots is over and after the orange one finishes reading the teleprompter.

    • Remember seeing S. Epatha Merkerson in “Come Back, Little Sheba” on Broadway when you and Dad were in New York in January 2008 to see another play open off-off-Broadway? She was wonderful.
