1025. See what I mean?

1025lamborghini

Let me get one thing straight. You jokers, all you jokers who want to be rich, it’s no fun being rich. It’s no fun being famous. I might be a film star but life’s not all a bed of roses. Let me illustrate.

Yesterday my wife walked out on me, and tonight I’ve got my first date since. I’m pretty excited about it, as she’s a fairly well-known person and has both looks and money. A celebrity. The money bit suits me down to the ground, especially since the now-ex-wife will try to get at least half of what’s mine.

It’s important that I impress, so I thought I’d pick the new woman up in a brand-new Lamborghini. A white one. Well, the stupid car dealer had only one Lamborghini and it was red. You’d think with a cash sale they’d make a bit of an effort. There wasn’t time to search around for a white Lamborghini because I need it tonight, so I bought the red one. And now I have to go and change my entire wardrobe.

See what I mean?

          I suspect your comment has (almost) transmuted you into Samuel Beckett, or maybe into my friend Eugene Ionesco (who used to write to me!) Perhaps your horses are more Ionesco’s Rhinoceroses than Beckett’s Godot!

              Rhinoceros (to me) is one of the pivotal plays of the 20th century. Shame on you Uma!!! I might add that I’ve always preferred Ionesco to Beckett – e.g. The Bald Prima Donna I’ve directed I think 6 or 7 times. Not to be silly about it, but I think Ionesco is “a way in” to understanding Beckett (whom I do “love”)!!

                      It was a bit obtuse… It was a reference to a poem we were made to learn off by heart as kids regarding “parts of speech”:
                      A preposition stands between two words,
                      As ‘She stood BY the queen. (It’s still obtuse!)

        Ha! A paltry dairy farm with a few scruffy-looking ruminant animals with mad-cow disease! Have you seen what a Lamborghini Countach costs these days?

          Only half a million! Whereas the farm (today) would be 6 or 7 million! Unfortunately the farm is no longer there – only yesterday the Minister of Transport cut a ribbon for a new highway going straight through where once was my boyhood bedroom.

    hi Bruce, ah the chagrin of being rich.after buying the lamborghini there wont be any cash left to buy the new wardrobe.
    I remember going to a comedy open mike years ago and the stand up comedian said she didnt really have to make anything up life was hilarious.
    and so I was talking to my neighbour the other day and I saidd about his camouflage jacket I said it was cool and he told me he had matching pyjamas and slacks and I am sure he would have loved to have a car of the same pattern. he typically acts like he lives in a war zone. I will let him know how difficult your situation is to establish solidaritly between victims of fashion.
