Who or what is ‘the OTHER Larry’ blog?

Welcome to my very important blog, perhaps the most important blog you will ever read.  It’s so great to finally be able to do something important.  Ever since I left my corporate career, I’ve lived as an unimportant shmuck, spending my days on the golf course, at the bridge club, getting drunk with friends, arguing with my wife, and giving unwelcome advice to my children and grandchildren.   Nobody is impressed with anything I say or do anymore.  When I walk into a room, nobody pays any attention to me.  Back when I used to run a company with 3000 employees, a room went quiet when I walked in; and when I began to speak, even if all I had to say was ‘don’t anybody mention a word to me about yesterday’s Bears game unless you don’t want a raise this year’, they listened to every word as if I were the most important person in the world.  No wonder I’ve turned to blogging.  No wonder I’ve convinced myself that blogging is actually something important and that my blog is a very important blog, perhaps the most important blog you will ever read.  Compared to everything else I do or say, even a stupid blog ranks higher in importance.   So what if it’s not the most important blog ever.  So what if you don’t even find it important.  It makes me feel important to write it, and I really need to feel important.  If this makes me trivial, superficial, idiotic, egotistical, curmudgeonly, misguided, and dumber than a doornail, so be it.  My observations about my trivial, superficial, idiotic, egotistical, curmudgeonly, misguided, and dumber than a doornail life are important whether you believe it or not.  I see things that other unimportant people do not see.  I understand what other unimportant people do not understand.  I am the king of unimportance and am therefore important.  So, once again, welcome to my very important blog, perhaps the most important blog that you will ever read.  And please allow me to introduce myself.  I am the other Larry.  If you’re wondering who’s the other, other Larry, just keep reading the observations of my life every day and you’ll probably figure it out.
