I mean, sure, but then again nothing ever truly mattered; not then or now. Meaning and passion were just some shit you found along the way. But when death comes knocking, everything changes. Except that it doesn’t. It just seems like the show will go on without you, when in reality you know enough to know that you’re not actually you and this isn’t anything like what you think. So fuck it. Enjoy what’s left with the vigor of the delightful curmudgeon that you are.

Good reply.  Even if it is from an attorney. I suppose they’re human as well….?  Can one hire beautiful women to love ugly old men?  Nah, there’s got to be a limit.  Can a Priest….no, they’re limited to self-serving platitudes and/or little kids.

Oh but how humanity so failed to stifle the sexual Predilections of even the straight Priests… “If only one more Hail Mary would find a fine Young Charlatan my way, Dear Lord, I’ll repent and you’ll still have me past Saint Peter?” Asked the Green Priest. “It’s just a little pussy!” Whispered the eavesdropping sexy and cynical young nun.

I think one can hire beautiful women to love ugly old men, but it comes at a very high price.  Dogs are cheaper.

Agree. And small dogs don’t argue as much.  What ugly old men?!  None here.  Just a kindly gentle old fart.  Well, maybe.

You should spring for one of those new sex robots. They’re perfect for lonely old rich men. If I were in their marketing department that’s how I’d promote them. I can see the advertising campaign, a series of “before and after” testimonials.

Old age ain’t for the faint of heart.

My well-aged uncle met the woman who would become his dearest companion at the cemetery when they were both visiting their spouse’s graves.  So ya never know.

It sounds like Madison’s (Maddie’s?) training of you is going well; now that she’s claimed her spot in bed, she can concentrate on her food preferences, etc.

Dennis,

Alexa has already been proposed to a million times.  Take 5 minuts to watch this video:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iRzUHyDN2Oo

If you can hang on, things are about to get really interesting in the AI dept.

I just want to say that you’re probably one of my all time favorite posters, but whose this Chica? I love that look.

I have asked Alexa if she’d marry me.  She said Hell no!  Rejected by a smart speaker.  How’s that for a rejection!?

My very good friend who lived next door to us, who was also a psychologist, killed herself April 1.  She had Alzheimers, as had her father, and she elected not to end that way.  A classy decision well carried out. I helped in getting her in touch with Final Exit, then called the Hemlock Society, and they provided the Nitrogen and equipment for that exit. Am toying with the same decision.

I’m not sharing her unless you take out the word ‘probably’.

Dennis, you probably didn’t ask Alexa in the right atmosphere . . .you know, candles, a good bottle of wine . . . also, how many carats was the ring?  Also, cairngorm isn’t going to cut it no matter many carats it was.  Secretly, she would probably like to be Alexa Campbell.

Do you have Alzheimer’s or some other debilitating condition?

No, just age and indifference to living longer….apart from one demanding 12 lb dog.

Well, wouldn’t say that nothing truly matters, are you at least not unhappy with yourself:

Those things for which we’ve spent time vying
Lose value when we see we’re dying.
It’s when we get old
We find the real gold’s
The one we’ve become in the trying.

Not unhappy with myself. A more apt term is perhaps bored.  Regret any number of past events, have no apologies for any of them. I’ve had my time, somewhat more than average statistically and considerably more in terms of education and as a result affluence; no “complaints” in those Not at this point seeking to end my life, just don’t much care if it does end, apart from assuring small dog is cared for and the dying part is not all that attractive.

Asked Alexa again.  Rejected again.  Rats. Seems perfect, a bright and articulate female who shuts up on command.  Oops, that may get me in trouble.

I would think that indifference would be somewhat of a breath of fresh air when compared to young people’s anxiety-ridden irrationality?

I see you running down the street pursued by a band of offended bright and articulate females. Not bad for 81.

Let me post this situation and ask for any advice. 
I’m living alone with a small dog.  I can easily, using Alexa, be laying on the floor, call for 912 as my IP7 will interface with Alexa and call anyone on the Contact list, including 911 or Emergency.  That’s not my concern.  If I become unconscious and/or die, it could be weeks before anyone comes by to check, and that’ll leave that small dog to suffer and perhaps die. 

Anyone know of a smart watch application that would, if I’m unresponsive and/or dead, contact 911 or other contacts without my having to press buttons or speak? 

Dennis
