I remember my mom talking about Jack LaLanne, about how as a housewife in the 50’s she would watch his daytime television show religiously because it was the closest thing to watching porn without actually doing so. She and many others around that time fantasized about this man and his good health and burgeoning muscles, though mom would never admit it, I felt that she would leave dad in a heartbeat had Jack come calling. Fortunately that never happened and Jack went on to outlive my mom by a dozen or so years. Now that Jack has finally crossed over, I wonder how many housewives in heaven are now at peace knowing that their muscleman is with them once again. Rest in Peace Jack LaLanne and say hi to mom for me, she will be the one unable to look away, even for a second.
