Monday Funny

June 16, 2014

Now that the Cheap Bastard’s kids are out of school for the summer, things will be a little topsy turvy for a while, which means that there may be some days when there’s a bargain post and others when there won’t. Also, some days it will be up around 11 a.m., others it might be as late as 11 p.m.

I’d still like to give you a reason to visit, though. So why not go with something funny?

Some of you have already seen this, but I’m posting it anyway because of the memories it stirs up. The first time I heard this song as it was sung by Eric Carmen, it was the day after my bar mitzvah and I was on the inevitable post-event comedown. After years of rehearsal, the big event was over, the adrenaline rush had ended and I was spent. Like anybody who has gone through a big life event, I was hovering between relief and sadness that it was all over….until the song came on and I immediately became so depressed, it took the better part of the school week to recover.

And every time I’ve heard it since, it has sent me into a funk, no matter what my emotional state at the time.

Not any more.

Thanks to this video, every time I hear the song now, I’ll just laugh out loud.
