  1. 1) Right Said Fred. But they might be too sexy. BUT they are absolutely not vulgar. I’ll fight you about that.

    2. Exercise. Between wearing masks, not having gyms, and people refusing to keep their distance, exercise has changed from a stress fighter to a source of anxiety.

    3. Too many to rank really. There was the time I hit my head and may have briefly died. That was a doozy–waking up in an ambulance screaming down Colfax with two paramedics screaming at me to come back. I was eventually admitted to DGH with a diagnosis of “intoxication.”

    4. I’m not much a Youtube viewer truth be told.
