All Work and Too Much Play

Greetings!  Hope you’re all having a sweet ’16!  I want to give a special shout out to Chuck Cochran and all of the good people of the Reynoldsburg Community Association.  I had a great time performing clean stand-up comedy for the adults and a comedy magic show for the kids (and the kid inside each adult) during your Spaghetti Dinner last Saturday night, at Messiah Lutheran Church on Waggoner Road.  Great crowd, delicious dinner, and lots of fun.

I also met some fine folks, including their president, Jack Seith, from the Westerville Sertoma yesterday morning during their 7:30 am meeting at the Panera on Maxtown Road.  It was well worth getting up at 6:00 am (a tad early for comedian) to meet all of you.  I really enjoyed performing stand-up comedy for you guys.  I hope you had as much fun as I did.

Last, but not least.  Kudos to the Mount Vernon Kiwanis Club.  During their luncheon yesterday, I enjoyed some wonderful food while sitting between a Methodist pastor and a podiatrist, and each was pretty funny in his own right.  Thank you for a great meal and the opportunity to get to know you.  I hope you enjoyed the stand-up comedy as much as I enjoyed performing it for you.

If you’re keeping track of the above, that was four 30 minute performances, in three cities, in 42 hours.  This was after spending last Thursday through Saturday at the MagiFest, watching shows, attending lectures, buying new props, and, in general, getting my geek on.  Friday night, I left MagiFest long enough to attend a comedy concert with my son, Joe (his Christmas present to me).  Every part of my body is dragging today.

So far today, during my recovery day, I have done three loads of laundry, put away the clean dishes from the dishwasher (I think they were clean), taken out the trash, sent follow-up emails to all three of the aforementioned clients, answered all of my email, and gone for a thirty minute walk. All before 1:00 pm est.  Maybe, after I make the bed, vacuum the floors and make dinner, my wife will let me go to my “Men’s Liberation” meeting.  I know I dated myself, there, but my wife won’t allow me to date anyone else.
