I'm going to go on just living and laughing and loving.
In high school, I was the class comedian as opposed to the class clown. The difference is, the class clown is the guy who drops his pants at the football game, the class comedian is the guy who talked him into it.
People thought this would be an award show -- but we couldn't get anybody to open up the envelopes. I've been backstage at a lot of rock concerts, and I've never seen musicians run away from white powder before!
Even when I was in school shows, in elementary school doing plays, I'd always go off book and start improvising.
At 60, I could do the same things I could do at 30, if I could only remember what those things are.
I didn't rebel as a child. I missed that angry teenager thing.
When you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.
