'DROOPERT', SCREWY DRIVER - SAFETY COMMERCIAL -
British Pathe, the world’s leading multimedia resource with a history stretching back over a century. The finest and most comprehensive archive of fabulous footage and stunning stills.
In an earlier post I shared an ad from a 50’s driving school that advised people to not be a “Droopert.” This clip staring Jack Carson explains what that means.
Marry your best friend. I do not say that lightly. Really, truly find the strongest, happiest friendship in the person you fall in love with. Someone who speaks highly of you. Someone you can laugh with. The kind of laughs that make your belly ache, and your nose snort. The embarrassing, earnest, healing kind of laughs. Wit is important. Life is too short not to love someone who lets you be a fool with them. Make sure they are somebody who lets you cry, too. Despair will come. Find someone that you want to be there with you through those times. Most importantly, marry the one that makes passion, love, and madness combine and course through you. A love that will never dilute - even when the waters get deep, and dark. —

There are very few things in my life that I feel I got completely right but I think I did this one. I need my best friend to be happy and the fact that we live in the same house makes it remarkably convenient for us when we want to tell each other ridiculous jokes.
The one thing I always add when I see things like this is: Find someone who dislikes the same things you dislike. Nothing brings you close to somebody like having a common enemy.
