Nobody Put On Deoderant Behind Me


Today we drove over to Kalamamalakazookman and watched Mouse in a production of The Women, by Clare Booth Luce, at the Kalamazoo Civic Theatre. She played the second saleswoman. It was a wonderful play and Mouse did a great job with her role, although, as a seasoned actor, she pointed out some little glitches that she and others made. I didn’t notice them, well maybe one, but it wasn’t Mouse’s glitch. Back in the YAG days, I would’ve been around whatever play it was long enough to know when something got screwed up. This time I was just an audience member. Mouse’ll hate me for saying this but she was beautiful in 1930s garb! (She’s beautiful anyway, but. Grok grok. Duck ‘n’ run, Ol’ Baggy. gro grok.) I think when all is said and done, she’ll post pictures. I only have this one bad, grainy pic from after the play was over. This was a professionally run production and the actresses had to take off change out of their costumes and take off their makeup before greeting their fans. And mooms were definitely not allowed backstage. 😉

    Cool. (Yes she is beautiful!, even grainy). I just got back from a Seattle Womens Chorus show – Lift it Up – with composer and singer Dr. Bernice Johnson Reagon – one of the Sweet Honey in the Rock founders, and a lot of other stuff. It was great, very inspirational. Gives you the thought that you can just keep moving it forward. I particularly liked it when she described that a yoke is not really a burden, but a tool to help make the burden easier to bear.

    Anyway, it is time to get back to my burden of work, but with a better attitude than this morning.
