Tales from the Perimeter: I Feel Better Than James Brown

Via YouTube:

Just got back from a run with my old noontime running buddies.  Now that I am retired I make it a point to join them about once a month for a run.

It was a time of catching up, of Olympics talk, of home improvements, of families.

And I gave each of the guys a gift: a DVD copy of Brokeback Mountain.  Some years ago when the bride and I saw the movie, I told the guys how much I liked it.  Ever afterwards, they teasingly busted me about gays every chance they got. And believe me, there were plenty of opportunities, as I always went out of my way to defend gay and lesbian rights.

So now they have their very own copy.  And I feel better than James Brown.
