I Don't Text While Driving, Walking, or Standing Still
Roger Dale Loring, a former school teacher and coach in Gloucester has recently had his second book published. The book—I Don't Text While Driving, Walking, or Standing Still—offers his humorous views on life from the perspective of his "if-they-don't-have-a-senior-discount-I'm-not-going-there" age.
Realizing that the aging process evolved in a way that his adolescent mind never envisioned, Loring now finds his views on life changes are disturbingly similar to the old people of his youth, people he frequently criticized as old fogies. His essays highlight his humorous take on life that include opinions about issues such as cell phone upgrades, a man's attention span while using a television remote, his wife's seasonal purse shopping, the differing conversation patterns of men and women, the difficulties of watching sports on TV, the world of politics, where preaching to the choir dominates all campaigns, and, of course, the trauma of buying toothpaste.
The book shares many essays illustrating that a baby boomer's journey through an increasingly complicated world often is a journey full of laughter. More information about the book can be found at www.rogerloring.com. I Don't Text While Driving, Walking, or Standing Still and Loring's first book, Why Men Don't Ask For Directions are available on amazon.com and barnesandnoble.com.
