'How Not to Act Old' — Who's gonna be in the movie?


If they get the right director for the film adaptation of Pamela Redmond Satran's new book (above), the biggest stars in the world will work for scale for the chance to have a blast making this picture.

Note to director: I'm available.

Yo, joe — you're confused... but then, what's new?

Among Satran's 185 tips:

• Don't count out exact change

• Don't yell into the cellphone

• Don't be named Pam, Barbara, Dick, Donald, Mary or Judy

• Don't type on your smartphone with your index finger (use your thumbs)

• Don't say "you're welcome" ("no problem" is word)

• Don't wear a watch

Yeah, Joe! I see Angelina as me, Brad as my adoring husband. I await their call....and thank you for the compliment! Did you see that How Not To Act Old is #7 on next Sunday's NY Times Bestseller List?

So, these are things you should refrain from doing because doing them is supposed to make you look old -- not things you should do because doing them is supposed to make you look young? If you look not old, is that equal to looking young? Which one should a person go for, I wonder? You know how it's real embarrassing to see somebody who is doing things because they're supposed to make them look young? Well, is there a deal where you opt for doing things because they make you look not old, as opposed to not doing things? I'm so confused.

Sadly, I've been telling Joe all of these hints for years and he doesn't listen...

surely the biggest tip in the book is 'don't read this book', because surely being in possession is admitting that you at least suspect your over it and need help!! x
