I saw Clint Eastwood on Letterman the other night. Turns out, he’s almost 80 years old. He looks great. (I assume there was some anesthesia and a scalpel involved.)
I love that even though he’s almost an octogenarian, he’s still beating the crap out of people in movies. I’m not one for violence, but this kind is OK in my book, because it’s inspirational (and aspirational) for the aging crowd.
What I couldn’t help but notice about Clint’s Letterman appearance, was his neck. He’s got a little gobble, gobble going on. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, but it got me thinking about how I might be able to prevent the “Butterball Effect”, as I age.
Then I found this tip online. It’s very simple and easy to do anywhere, as long as no one is looking at you.
Simply extend your lower teeth over your upper teeth. Then push your tongue to the roof of your mouth for 10 seconds.
Here’s Rene on the red carpet doing this exercise, or at least I can only hope that’s why she always has this expression on her face.
While doing this exercise, you’ll look like an 80 year old with no teeth, but it just may prevent you from looking like an 80 year old with a sagging neck. It’s kind of like a flu shot that way- you're given a little bit of the flu, in order not to get it.
Oh, yeah, if I happen to suddenly disappear, it was probably Clint Eastwood. And he’ll probably try to use the excuse that I was on his lawn.
