How often do you take your dog to the vet? Your dog becomes a part of the family. They give you unconditional love. You take care of them the best that you can. But have you noticed that taking care of pets has become as expensive as taking care of ourselves?
We Americans have gotten so used to having medical insurance. My Mom and Dad only went to the doctor when they were seriously ill. We didn’t have medical insurance. That was for rich people. Now everyone is encouraged to go to the dentist for checkups every six months. We’re encouraged to see our family physician at least once a year. We visit the optometrist once a year too. So many doctors appointments, even if you feel okay most of the time.
Well, now we pet owners are taking care of our pets in a similar fashion. We take them to get their teeth cleaned, take them in to the vet for annual checkups, and if we notice they are not eating like normal, then that’s another expensive trip to the vet’s office.
I love comedy. I really admire the talent of great stand-up comics. I think what they do is incredible. On the radio, I do what I do in a closed-door studio. I never see the audience. Stand-up comedians have to make people laugh while they are looking them right in the eye. It’s do or die. It takes guts, and great comedic chops.
So, I thought I would share some great stand-up comedy with you every Monday. Why? Because it’s Monday! Everyone could use a good laugh on Monday. So, here we go with our next installment.
