My life is no Viagra commercial

I saw this couple on TV tonight who’ve been married for 38 years and I realized if I want to do that, I need to get married now. Like right now. Accepting applications now….

And then I thought, I don’t know if I would get married again. Maybe it’s not for me. And while I long for the picturesque front porch watching our grandchildren run in the yard, is it too late to find that?
Does that exist? I want to find a companion, if not a husband, to go dancing and movies and adventure and all that stuff I see on Viagra commercials. They make retirement and relationships look good, right?

I had a neighbor, Hester, and her husband had died but she kept herself busy with the over 50 activities at the rec center. She walked everywhere and she loved my girls. Then one day she was talking to her son on the phone and died. She was really a sweet neighbor.

Death is funny. Funny, peculiar; not funny, ha-ha. What’s actually funny is how I got to death while talking about marriage. Maybe it really isn’t for me. Death is funny in how people come out of the woodwork at the end. Listen, if you haven’t talked to me in ten years and you find out (on Facebook, I’m sure) that I’m dying, just think about the good times we had but there’s no obligation for you to come see me one last time. That’s just my personal preference. So who wouldn’t want to marry all this morbidity I have going on? I’m a catch, suckers.

So back to marriage….hold on, I went to my friend Diane’s wedding and told my sister, I’ll see you later, I’m going to Diane’s funeral. Talk about Freudian. Maybe I should start with something else. Do you have any thoughts on marriage? Yay or nay?

This is the kind of company I keep.

    I don’t know if I’d ever get remarried either. Of course, I’ve been divorced like, a year, so my situation is a bit different from yours. You’ve had time to forget some of the monkey’s stupidity, and I’m still going through it all with “Mr. Wonderful”…

    I would like someone to spend time with as well, but not sure it would have to end with marriage, necessarily.
