As you are all well aware, my lookalike is Andie McDowell. I was therefore a little distressed to see on the television this evening that she has taken to advertising products that are concerned with reducing the effects of greying hair. The cynical among you will be of the opinion that she is merely attempting to boost her already extensive fortune. But I have been affected by all of the wonderful messages that have been pouring in here, and have embraced the christmas message.

I telephoned Andie on the videophone (honestly, it is just like talking into a mirror) and told her not to worry. I have not let the aging process affect me, and I still have to fight the women off. She should be more concerned about spreading a little love and happiness than by concern with the transient nature of her appearance.

There are truly lessons out there for all of us to learn

This love and happiness you invited her to spread; it wasn't unidirectional by any chance?

Is there any chance at all that you've taken a few hits on the head while fighting off the women over the years?

This could account for a few....uh...things.

Indeed, Vicus. One glance at your image demostrates to us all the terrible affect a life of purity can have on a young man, so what chance does the aging process have?

Certain it is that you need have no worries about the transient nature of your appearance.

I have developed quite of few of these crimpy gray hairs that shoot out of my head at 90° angles. I am proud of them, I earned them and I named the first one Sparky. The next one, Sparky Two followed by Sparky Three and on and on and on.

Kindness, is it not a little early in the day to be that inebriated?

So Vicus, if you're Andie Macdowell we're all wondering: at $12.50 a box, are you really worth it?

Vicus Scurra said...

Raincoaster, you should know.

Pardon me for asking but, if you look like Andie McDowell, shouldn't you be fighting off men?
