Yesterday, I fell in love with the HBO documentary If You’re Not in the Obit, Eat Breakfast. This lovely movie about vital and thriving people in their 90s lovingly showcases Carl Reiner, Mel Brooks, Dick Van Dyke, Norman Lear, Betty White, Iris Apfel, Tony Bennett, the late Stan Lee, and many lovable non-celebrities. I love this tag line for the film: “What’s the secret to living into your 90s — and loving every minute of it?”
Jerry Seinfeld, who is not in his 90s and who I hope gets there (because I love him), is also in the movie. He describes his ideas about how to live well into your 90s, which include “Fall in love every day. I don’t mean romantic love. Fall in love with your parking space.”
Maybe I WILL make it into my 90s, because I fall in love every day, with my parking space and many other things. Do you see the love in my photos from yesterday?
I love so many things about those photos, including the penguin-that-looks-like-a-monkey Starbucks cake pop. I also love that my new and lovely co-worker Alice and I went to Starbucks yesterday not wanting to buy anything but just to smell the coffee (which some lovely researchers say can revitalize you), and the lovable Starbucks barista (not pictured) opened a giant container of roasting beans (also not pictured) and let us smell their lovely aroma.
What might you fall in love with today?
I’ve fallen in love every day about thanking those who help me write these daily posts and also my lovely readers (including YOU).
