Nobody gets me, and its all my own fault because the inside me has no connection to the outside me. I realize I look like a perfectly normal well adjusted reasonably pleasant sort of fellow but inside I’m a raging lunatic. Basically an M&M, I have a sweet thin coating on the outside, but on the inside I’m processed stuff that’s really just a bunch of crap that’s not really any good for you… but still a tasty snack. ‘Another Divorced Dad in L.A.’ is my one-man show in which, among other things — having been asked by my son to speak at his upcoming wedding — I am trying to find the right words of wisdom to celebrate the newlyweds new lives together.
