I love British sitcoms. I love the humor. They are not for everyone, but they are definitely for me! There is one in particular that I love called "As Time Goes By." Here is the basic plot according to IMDB:
Lionel and Jean were lovers many years ago at the time of the Korean War. They are separated by a misunderstanding but meet again by chance when Lionel needs a secretary from Jean's firm. He takes her daughter, Judy, out on a date and discovers she is Jean's daughter. The two reunite and fall back in love.
Well, as they reconnect when both of them are considerably older some of the humor revolves around getting old. In one particular episode that I saw recently on my local PBS station the character played by Palmer suffers throughout the episode with painful leg cramps.
This was all well and good while I watched it. I thought it was funny. Well, leg cramps as a humor device became infinitely less funny to me when I was painful awakened by a leg cramp in the middle of the night--I mean really painful. Painful like I jumped up out of bed from a deep sleep to try to save myself painful.
And so I am getting old and am starting to have painful leg cramps and I have a gray hair and I don't at all care for the Jonas Brothers--although that last one may have more to do with good taste than with the fact that I am getting old or at least older.
