Come. Join My Cult.
In my never-ending quest for world domination to sell more books to make my readers’ lives even more wonderful, may I suggest you join a How Not To Act Old Meetup. If you’ve never heard of a Meetup, well, that’s all the more reason to hurry on down there because it’s a sign you might be acting old. Meetup.com is a computer dating service for mature singles who want to get together for every kind of reason you might think of besides dating.
So, yeah, you can get together with 16 other people who don’t want to act old and sit around reading sections out loud from the book and practicing them. And then you can each go and start your own meetups with 16 new people, provided, of course, that you all buy copies of the book. And then those 16 people can each go and…
Radical idea, I know. I don’t think it’s ever been done. But I think I may be onto an innovative way to get rich quick.
For now, there’s an existing How Not To Act Old meetup in (where else?) LA, and one pending in (wha’?) Des Moines. Plus that map below, like something in a horror movie, seems to be a living, breathing entity, with new potential meetups sprouting up all the time.
But don’t worry, there’s still a lot of open territory. Act now! First ten callers get a Bernie Madoff bobblehead.
