Happy Friday! How it’s almost September I really don’t know?!, and you know what that means: all of the millennials will be playing “September” by Earth, Wind, and Fire like they were there. How do I know this? Well, because I admit to being part of that cliche…
On this Friday, I wanted to tell you about one of the people I relate to the most despite very obvious differences.
This person helped play a role on the top show of the 90’s, Seinfeld. This person also has regained some notoriety for their comedy in the past few years.
Jerry Seinfeld? Nope, I wish.
Julia Louis-Dreyfus? If only I had her charm and good looks.
The person I am talking about is Larry David. You may know him from a meme or his hit show on HBO, Curb your Enthusiasm. For those that don’t know, David is known for his dry humor and sardonic wit. That’s not always popular with people, but as someone with that personality, I will admit that I act way too much like him. In Seinfeld, the character of George Constanza was based on David’s life.
By the way, in the show, Costanza somehow ends up being an assistant General Manager for the Yankees and the Mets. He’s also in his late 20s living with his parents unemployed. Hmm, That sounds a little too familiar.
Anyway, David is such a role model for good and bad, that I insisted on living on the upper west side when I lived in New York. Then I realized that shows aren’t reality. A wise man once told me that maybe not working out in the city three times. Stubborn old me.
Anyway, happy Friday! Here are a few funny clips from both Seinfeld and Curb In which I relate including featuring Christoval’s own survivor, Colby Donaldson.
As always, do one good thing for someone. I gave a belly rub to Wally. He didn’t return the favor. Twerp.
