My First Love....

    I met my first love when I was 12 years old. I remember I used to stay up late or sneak downstairs after bed to see her when everyone else was asleep. I knew I should be asleep, but I couldn't resist the amazing feeling I had when I was with her. If I felt sad, she made me smile, often laughing out loud. She never judged me. She never made me feel bad. She didn't care what I looked like. She never gets jealous. She never noticed my failings.... She even helped me find ways to enjoy them, and laugh at them. Now there are some nights that we don't get along, but those are few and far in between.
When I'm depressed, she picks me up. She has the power to heal my soul. When I'm happy, we laugh out loud together.
     I still am very much in love with her today. Not a day goes by when I don't think of her, or write something for her. She's amazing.
     You see, my first love is comedy.... I fell in love with comedy when I was 12, watching The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson. It was there that I saw the magic of Jerry Seinfeld's first Tonight Show appearance, I saw George Carlin, Bill Cosby, Don Rickles, Joan Rivers, Garry Shandling, David Brenner, Jay Leno, Ray Romano, Eddie Murphy, Ellen DeGeneres, Rodney Dangerfield, and so many more....
    I know she'll always be there. If one of us gets fat, we'll laugh about it. If one of us goes bald, we'll laugh about that too.
    And the amazing thing about this love, is that she always helped me with women too. She's the best.
