I haven’t actually been to Europe, which might not be a bad thing, because they might not want me there. So all I can really go on is what I’ve heard about it and what I’ve seen about Europe from movies. But to me anyway it look like a semi-country, somewhere between a country and region. Not completely one or the other. And a country that doesn’t seem to like Americans, but loves coming to America and emigrating here. Not that different from the Far-Right in America that claims to love America, but doesn’t like Americans.
As far as the movie Big, gee that is a believable realistic movie. A little boy, I believe twelve-years old (going off memory here) who wakes up as a thirty something year old man and an executive a large New York corporation. But hey this is Hollywood where Kojak always gets his man. Where Perry Mason never loses a case or represents the guilty. Where a thirteen-year old can own and operate a Major League Baseball franchise and I could go on, but I’ll spare you the rest. So what the hell? But not exactly one of my favorite movies.
As far as golf, not my game and I would probably have better luck trying to make pizza with just peanut butter and jelly, than becoming a competent golfer. Not saying I’m not athletic enough to play golf, wait we’re talking about golf, no athletic ability needed. Unless you include walking and standing. So maybe I could learn to play if I didn’t fall asleep during the lessons. The only thing I think that would be more boring than playing golf, would be to watch it.
As far as surfing, that looks interesting to me, but I have a couple of problems. I hate drowning and love living. So maybe I would do what Dave Letterman did and try surfing in a pool. Perhaps a pool that didn’t have any water in it though. Right, I mean why take the risk. Tom Hanks, I always thought of him as a comedian playing an actor, or vice-versa, I think you get the idea. A natural comedian who is both a great actor and comedian.
