This very concept is what drives me mad about all the “life hacks.” I mean, really? Crib sheets to success. “Get off my lawn.”

This essay made me laugh, HEARTILY! Your observations are brutally frank and true. You really should consider stand-up.

My best friend in the whole world is a 96-year-old Black woman who has seen some things and accomplished some things. The gifts of her wisdom and friendship is one of my greatest treasures.

You’re so right, the wisdom of the aged is priceless and it only comes from living and having experienced life.

[thunderous applause!]
