What the . . . One to Grow On?
Today: What the One to Grow On?
Do I ever forget anything?
While away from you all on my bloggy staycation, enjoying the good life of nose-and-butt-wiping, I forgot about my weekly WTF? segment.
So my sincere apologies if you came here last Friday hoping to see something in the way of a Mr. T’s Fashion Show, or a Richard Simmons Sweatin’ to the Oldies commercial, or a Mr. Wizard threatening a kid with a hammer type of thing.
Did I forget about One to Grow On, the Saturday morning PSA that I once used as my moral compass?
Even today I’m still applying to my everyday life those generous nuggets of wisdom that were passed along to me by my favorite sitcom actors.
Why, in fact, just last week I refrained from burning down my house with a box of matches because I remembered the words of Kid #1 in Members Only Jacket spoken to Kid #2 in Members Only Jacket.
“You burn me up. What’s the point of playing with fire if it can burn both of us?”
– Kid #1 in Members Only Jacket
And who can forget this? The passion, the fire — yes, fire — in Michael J. Fox’s eyes. Wow. Did they give out Emmys for PSAs? I hope so.
