Kvetch and Kangaroos (Blogging from A to Z Challenge)

April 13, 2015

I hate to kvetch, but… The truth is we love to kvetch, misery loves company, right?, so why do we preface our kvetching with modesty? What is a kvetch but a thought? A worry? A concern? A human reaction to anything that happens in life that we want some human with? This might be one of the Excellent Questions that Tom Sturges talks about in his book “Every Idea Is A Good Idea” and if I ever meet him I’ll ask him.

We all have aches and pains and worries and concerns and we all have the same aches and pains and worries and concerns at different times so I say embrace the idea of being human and embrace the kvetch. Reach out and find an open ear to bend and bend it.

One final “K” for today goes to a guy I used to watch every day on television when I was a kid. I doubt anyone reading this is as old as me and remembers him but I do and I’ll say that the world would be a better place today if we had Captain Kangaroo back. I don’t know why, but I used to love how when he hung his key ring on the hook the theme music would instantly stop. The video fades and cuts out right at that point but you can just see him hang the keys.

    Loved CK–thanks for the stroll down memory lane. You’re right–more Captain Kangaroo’s and Mr. Rogers.
