Don could end up like Jimmy Hoffa. The only difference being, they looked for Jimmy Hoffa.

So I’m applying to Webster’s dictionary for a new word to be added to the English language. I just invented it and I’m calling it “regraught”. It means I don’t regret what I did, I regret I got caught. I regraught a whole lot of stuff in my life. But I’m not here to confess. What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas. The other stuff I’ll discuss with my maker when I apply to get in heaven. Nixon regraught Watergate. Bill Clinton regraughts he let Monica Lewinski smoke his cigar. Now we have Donald Sterling. I imagine poor Don regraughts just waking up in the morning these days. Racism was the song of the south for so long. Donald Sterling showed us it’s sung everywhere. Donald better watch his mouth too. He might not live to regraught it. Magic Johnson and his posse have some juice. Don could end up like Jimmy Hoffa. The only difference being, they looked for Jimmy Hoffa.

Regret does seems to be a common theme these days. In 1980 my brother tried to get me to go in with him and invest $5000 in Apple stock. I didn’t. I regret that. I regret I didn’t spend more time with my grandson Matthew. I don’t have a favorite but Matt will always have seniority. He’s 17 now and doesn’t listen to me anymore. There was time we were pretty close. I regret making that video. I wish I knew where it was. I think one day soon we will hear Kim Kardashian say she regrets she married Kanye West. I can’t believe she named their son North West. I guess the poor kid should be grateful his Dad was not Steve Jobs….We all regret Justin Bieber.

In the ninth grade I had a thing for Cindy Corolla. Man she was gorgeous. Blonde hair, blue eyes. Could make a preacher sweat. But I was really shy and never acted on my feelings. My best friend Pete Wilson always told me one day I would regret not asking her to go see a movie with me and he was right. I think that’s the case with most of us. The things we really regret in our lives are not things we did, it’s the things we didn’t do when we had the opportunity. I regret I never had the chance to regraught that.
