I tried to explain to the Gazelle my idea for a running based sitcom. I explained it in painstaking detail to him. Several times, but he just wasn’t having any of it. I’m blaming that on the fact that he just finished working the night shift.
I have been thinking of running based television shows for a bit now. As quickly as I think them up, I reject them. I did have this really great idea about a guy who decides to win back his girlfriend after he left her standing at the alter by running a marathon, but that one was already taken.
Then I thought, hey, what about this one? There is this ghost who used to be a world record runner. I’m not sure whether he runs marathons or short distances yet. I’m still working on that part.
But our heroine dreams of being able to be like her uncle, dad, grandfather and run. Haven’t quite figured that part out yet either. But by the time Hollywood or CBC buys it from me, I’ll let them figure it out.
Anyway, our heroine a lovely attractive lady, much like myself, played by a classic looking famous actress – the Gazelle says why don’t you just play it yourself – maybe I’ll just let Hollywood figure that out, who encounters funny situations each week in her quest to run like her famous running descendant. Did I mention that her family member offers her advice on how to run better, which is what lands her in hilarious situations each week?
Oh the fun I can have each week! I wonder would Hollywood let Viggo Mortenson be my ghost? I’d better go and work out the details before Hollywood comes calling.
