In November of 1995, my friend Dan and I saw a one-man show on Broadway called “Defending the Caveman.” It had opened earlier that March and eventually went on to set the record as the longest-running solo play in Broadway history.
It was flipping hilarious.
I remember my stomach muscles being literally sore when we left the Helen Hayes Theater and raced to our next show. (We didn’t mess around in those days. It wasn’t like I lived in New York or anything.)
So I had to laugh when I saw an article in Glamour some 15 years later on the cave woman’s guide to — of all things — good health.
My, my…we’ve gotten a tad bit more serious over the years, haven’t we?
The mag does offer some good tips, based on our cave women forebearers’ daily habits, including things like:
- Move your body
- Get some natural light
- Eat real food
- Beware of predators (sexual)
- Accept some natural moodiness
- Connect with others…in person
- Get some ZZZZZs
- Create some healthy downtime
- Party like a cave woman
Not nearly as funny as Rob Becker’s show. But maybe seeing “Defending the Caveman” — it’s still on tour all over the world — would fall under tip #9.
