    If this was true… what a sad, pitiful (in the literal sense of the word) testimony…

    Was it an umbrella he had? You can hide beneath an umbrella in public, even if your face is universally famous and people would normally notice you on the street and wonder why you were so sad.

      You’re taking this a step deeper. I like it. ☂️

        Actually, I stopped reading autobiographies. Fact or fiction? They’re very one-sided.

        What would be the title of yours if you wrote it? Maybe the title of this blog?

          Me? I’m sure I would try for something clever. I’m not attached to the title of the blog but merely tried to make an obvious HHG reference.

          What about you? What would yours be named?

            Don’t know. If I were trying for a HHG reference I could go with Mostly Gormless. 🙃

    Sounds like the advice of that ancient woebegone Johnny Ray song, ‘Walking In The Rain.’

      Are you feeling the fool?

        ‘Deed I do, but I’ll face up to it and keep walking. (A good way to walk into a lamp-post, but what’s a fool to do?)

    I cried, yesterday. Saw the last twenty minutes of Miracle on 34th Street. When they dump those letters on the judge’s desk, I’m a goner.

      I have a love/hate relationship with those climatic film moments.

    I’ve read that Charlie and his brother largely raised themselves as his father passed when he was little and his mom dealt with a severe illness. A large percentage of comics seem to have a lot of sadness in their lives. Perhaps this is one of the ways they manage.

      I didn’t know that. I think you’re right. – about comics.
