Yow! They Did It To Me Again!

I have to look at it this way – very few people get typecast as Satan and then get to write their own speeches.

I also now know the answer to “What happens when you work yourself into a state of fatigue, don’t eat right, and constantly forget to take your vitamins, because you’re not as young as you used to be, you know.” (Wait, that ended up not being a question…)

Somewhere in there, with the illness and the work, I sacrificed a morning to the god of parenthood, being interviewed by a diagnostician to determine if my son is truly ADD or if I’m just old and curmudgeonly. We already know he’s dyslexic, so I’m leaning toward the “I’m not that old” end of the equation.

B-Fest reminisces must return soon, before I forget them entirely.

And, oh yeah, you can blame my pal Dave for pointing out to me – repeatedly and relentlessly – that City of Heroes was on sale at Best Buy.

  1. Can your son follow a full-length movie? Not “Can he sit still for it,” because even I can rarely do that, but can he follow the story for that long?

    If he can, he’s not ADD. End of story. (And I’m sorry, but I’m not on the panel of your HMO, so you can forward full payment to…)

  2. Ha ha, you’re a funny man, presuming I have insurance.

    Can he follow a full-length movie? If he’d stop leaving the room with instructions to call him the next time something’s going to explode, he might.

  3. Isn’t that the way we ALL watch movies?

  4. I, then, seem to be suffering from the exact opposite….I can’t stay awake long enough to sit through a full length movie as of late….

    Is it possible to develop nacrolepsy past the age of 30?

  5. If you replace “leave the room” with “neck” you have a pretty good description of how most of the population of the U.S. saw <>Top Gun<>.

    I have been falling asleep during movies lately as well, but the fact that those movies were the 80’s <>The Punisher<> and <>King of Kong Island<> may have had something to do with it.

  6. I think I may have just figured out why I prefer to watch movies <>alone<>.

  7. “King of Kong Island”? Ouch. The only accurate word in the whole title is “of.”

  8. I fell asleep recently watching the audio commentary for A NEW HOPE. Is Lucas really that friggin’ boring?
