And my left hip hurts.

It takes 1-2 minutes to twist to wipe my butt due to the pain.

I remember all the talk of the "New" Star Wars movie back in the late 70s. I didn't get and still don't. It's a freakin' movie...a made up story portrayed by folks paid to pretend. Some of the same folks who think they can lecture about "Climate Change" and other Einstein in their own mind political ideas.

Star Wars lost me at the Ewoks, and then totally alienated the rest of us with Jar Jar Binks. Then for good measure they went woke and honestly I couldn't care less about the entire franchise now.

Growing old is mandatory. Growing up is optional.
