I wish I could say I wrote that. I think I was always sort of thinking it in my head. It sounds so familiar. When I heard it…..well…..it got to be the title of my blog. And….isn’t it fantastic? It is another perfect line uttered by my favorite character on Grace and Frankie. And, yes, I know that this is my 3rd or 4th blog about Grace and Frankie…..sue me. Yes, I go trolling around the web looking for G and F news. I will admit…..I’m obsessed. Ok…not really….but, these two characters totally resonate with me. I am not their age….but, I just skidded over 50 and am feeling and seeing some of the fun shit that goes along with aging. I am not a fan. And, I laugh about it with my friends….if I can remember it, I write about it…..you get the picture.
Netflix has announced that there will be a season 4. I have already watched season 3……twice. It can’t get here fast enough. I am elated. I know the main characters aren’t getting any younger…..but, I think I am not the only fan! I love the characters on the show. Some of the story lines don’t excite me…..but, the vibrators for older women story is beautiful in so many ways.
I think I love this show mostly for the way these older people still have vibrant, fulfilling lives. Hope for my future, I suppose. As I am finding out that my childhood was a big fat lie (in many ways, but mostly adulthood did not turn out like I pictured it back then)….it is good to know that there is still a lot of life in my life.
And, apparently, I am going to continue my ongoing “journey” of age and discovery. And, I am going to share it with you fine people. Lucky you. I don’t really know why this is my ongoing theme lately. Maybe that skid over 50 left more road rash than I thought. I can’t help thinking (all of the fucking time……) how in the hell did I get here? The cool thing for me though, is that I have never been so sure of my direction or so happy. It makes wrestling with being “over the hill” much more entertaining. And fun.
Before I go, you should know the writers did not disappoint. They had another great season with perfect, perfect lines. “His penis had abs,” might be my favorite line so far. Here are more terrific lines from Season #3:
Get your fucking mother over here.
Fuck me in the eye.
You’re my brother. I’m glad mom bought you.
Would one of you geezers get me off the fucking floor?
Brianna taught me some pot words.
I miss your stupid mom, she’s my ride or die bitch.
She was rambling….like a prison letter.
My dummy exploded.
Your mother’s gun is named Louise?
I’m too stoned to play this game…what are you saying?
Thanks for reading. Have a terrific day. And, no….I do not get paid by Netflix…..but, I am not opposed.
