the entertainment is in the presentation. – john mcTiernan

Standard

walt disney studios

it was a day of contrasts

first

a surprise pickup

at baby b and baby j’s school

and off to

the mega-plex

for a classic show

about

relationships

and love

called

 ‘cinderella’

and

junk food

and

blankets

and

cozy seating

with

lots of cup holders

and then

i was

off to

 the intimate

ringwald theater

11011602_10206156814136610_5500624381773104007_o

for a new show

about

relationships

and love

called

‘about sex’

ringwald

and because

i was late arriving

fresh from

my cinderella experience

i parked illegally

ran in

and

met an actor

in the lobby

wearing only

boxer shorts

ready to take the stage

and

was introduced

by the

stage manager

my friend

right

in the middle

of his opening

and waved

to the audience

as i walked to

my tiny seat

in the front row

and

enjoyed

party punch

and

bags of

adult party favors

and

much laughter

and

great acting

it was quite a day.

variety is more than a means of avoiding boredom,

since art is more than an entertainment of the senses.
