Man of a Certain Age

This morning during a yawn, I arched my back into a stretch. You've probably done this yourself. You know, one of those stretches with arms raised and shoulders back. Anyway, while doing this, I felt a stabbing pain in my back, like someone had thrust a knife into my left lung. Movement was difficult for a few seconds. Though I eventually recovered a nearly full range of motion, a knot of dull pain remains in that area of my back.

So I have now reached the age that I need to do warm up stretches before I stretch.

Get Lost

Tonight begins the final season of Lost. Last season’s finale ended with a hydrogen bomb explosion and left us with many unanswered questions . . .

Did Jack’s plan to set off the H-bomb actually reverse the course of events that led to the crash of Oceanic 815?

Did anybody die in the explosion? If so, will Hurley be able to see them?

What does the death of Jacob mean? And will his nemesis (now appearing as Locke) bring good or evil to the island’s inhabitants?

Just how old is Richard, and why doesn’t he age?

How many funny nicknames will Sawyer come up with this year?

Will Charlie come back with his three hobbit friends: Frodo, Sam, and Pippin?

How tall is Walt now?

Will the Oceanic 815 survivors meet up with Gilligan and the other folks from the S.S. Minnow?

Tune in to ABC tonight to find out the answers . . .
