Hi again. How was your summer? Good I hope. In my previous post (early July?!?) I said I would commit to writing and working out more consistently. Well like all men, I am a liar. In both respects, my efforts have been sporadic at best, non-existent at worst. But like Penny Lane said in Almost Famous, “Every passing second is another chance to turn it all around.” I couldn’t find this quote on imdb.com, but I think it’s right.
Since you last heard from me, my odometer has clicked over to 31 and now another inevitability approaches…the countdown to my wedding day has reached single digits. So at this point, my physique is my physique. I’d put it at a solid “okay” (or basically the same as when I started writing about working out nine months ago). But my Sicilian tailor Benny, has done a fantastic job of creating the illusion of the ideal male form by taking my jacket in some. I really can’t overstate the importance of good tailoring.
A brief side note about marriage: Remember how excited you were when you graduated high school? You had summer vacation followed by four years of guiltless (or so you thought) sex and liver destruction to look forward to Life was grand! Now, think back to the end of that four years when it was time to graduate college. The feeling wasn’t quite the same was it? Sure, you were happy but you knew the real world and its obligations awaited. I think women have more of a graduating high school excitement about marriage, while men feel closer to that graduating college vibe.
Yes, that analogy sounded better in my head. And yes, I am legitimately excited about the wedding and the marriage. But in my case there will be a twinge of sadness around that joyous day because my dad won’t be there. It sucks. He would have had such a great time. He died of a heart attack in January so he’ll only be there in pictures and in spirit. Especially whenever the DJ plays some Three Dog Night (his favorite band). So I just want to re-re-start my Cure Talk musings by saying this: Don’t be afraid to talk to your parents about their health as they get older. Encourage them, especially those stubborn dads to get checked out. And get yourself checked out! Sometimes I’m nervous about going to the doctor. It’s so stupid! There’s probably nothing wrong with you, and if there is, now you can deal with it. Simple.
Next time you hear from me, (and you will soon!) I will be a married man and I’ll tell you about my Italian honeymoon and maybe about how red wine is a great source of anti-oxidants. Ciao a tutti!
