K is a hard one, but since you know about my love for Seinfeld (if you’ve been paying attention, that is)….
K is for Kramer, Cosmo Kramer. Really, it’s all about Seinfeld. I was deeply entrenched in the lives of Seinfeld and his friends during the 90s. Each character supplied something I needed. Elaine showed me I wasn’t such a loser in love. George showed me I wasn’t such a loser in life. Jerry made me laugh and wish I could date him, and Kramer always swept it and made a joke of George’s maladies, a mess of Jerry’s apartment, and competed with Elain for, well, a kid’s bike. He also ticked off his lawyer and got brilliant ideas stolen. And somehow managed to feed himself while having not a single lucrative job. Brilliant, I tell you!
As for the actor, let’s not talk about what happened to his career, or that night he disappointed and angered America with his crass words. What I try to remember is his Seinfeld part, and he delivered it brilliantly. Heck, I still catch Seinfeld re-runs from time to time, even though I know what happens in almost all of them! I could go on and on about other characters, but the letter was K, so you’ll have to wait. 🙂
