PLAYLIST FOR “AN EXERCISE IN EXERCISING” (AN ARCHIVE REBROADCAST (11.5.22)

6 Nov

Couldn’t do a live show this week, so I decided to take a stroll down memory lane, a shorter and shorter trip for me. Look what I found! A show from last Spring. Here’s what I wrote about the show at the time…

Until recently my exercise regimen consisted of Running my mouth, Stretching the truth; Rushing to judgment; and Leaping to all the wrong conclusions. Those days are gone. Now I have a Life Coach telling me when to sleep, when to wake up, when to stand, and how far to walk and on and on. And there’s no way I can tell this Life Coach to put a cork in it because my Life Coach isn’t a person – it’s an Apple Watch that’s become the boss of me. So if I have to endure this torture, of course, my audience had to endure the torture with two-hours of songs about exercise. I’d write more but my damned watch is telling me it’s time to stand!
