Sex and Old Age

by Edward ODaniel / November 28, 2003 10:10 AM PST

Ethel and Mabel, two elderly widows, were watching the folks go by from their park bench.

Ethel said, "You know, Mabel, I've been reading this 'Sex and Marriage' book and all they talk about is 'mutual orgasm'. 'Mutual orgasm' here and mutual orgasm' there - that's all they talk about. Tell me, Mabel, when your husband was alive, did you two ever have mutual orgasm?".

Mabel thought for a long while. Finally, she shook her head and said, "No, I think we had State Farm."

A Tragi-Comic Film on Old Age: About Schmidt

In reply to: Sex and Old Age


About Schmidt is a 2002 American drama film directed by Alexander Payne starring Jack Nicholson as Warren Schmidt and Hope Davis as his daughter Jeannie. In 2003 he received a Golden Globe for his screenplay for About Schmidt which also won the Writers Guild of America Award for Best Adapted Screenplay. The film is loosely based on the 1996 novel with the same title by Louis Begley.

By 1996, as Begley was getting that novel published, I had my eye on an early retirement at age 55. By 2002 I had retired and taken a sea-change. When I saw this film on TV in 2010 I had been fully retired from FT and PT work as well as many of my casual-volunteer commitments in the Baha?i community for five years. I watch a little TV after a day of reading and writing, research and journalism, editing and independent scholarship. I do this watching after midnight while I have a late night snack. The soporific effects of TV, the alpha waves?so I am told?induced, help me turn off my brain and set up the conditions for a good night of sleep. Occasionally a tasty-movie comes on. About Schmidt was such a visual delight, but after an hour I had to go to bed. In the morning I read the rest of the story on the internet and decided to write this prose-poem.-Ron Price with thanks to Wikipedia, 5 October 2010.

Thank you, Alexander, for your dark humour
and satirical depiction of American society. I
must, say, though, I could not help but laugh.
There?s a lot of dark humour in Australia and
I?ve lived Downunder for nearly forty years!!

I?m 66, too, just like Warren Schmidt. He & I
shared many things in-common which I won?t
go into here. But after a few laughs and some
reflection on this movie and my life, a prose--
poem seemed like a good thing to put down.

The evening of one?s life presents a new ball-
game: 60 to 100 has another set of challenges
to the 20 to 60 package if, of course, one lives
that long?.At 66 my second package has just
begun and I thank the inimitable-famous Jack
Nicholson for his entertainment and delight!!

Is there a point to this?
by MDFlax / October 5, 2010 9:55 PM PDT

And why dredge up a thread from 2003 to post it? And why 'this' particular thread? It seems un-connected.

I Googled your name, RonPrice9. You seem to be all over the place.

Your post appears to be a Copy/Paste, from elsewhere. If it is, I would call that Plagiarism.

Let me know why I should allow your post to remain. I deleted your others a few days ago because they looked like spam to me.
