True Landa style

All you need to know about me:

We saw Fuku Americanus, the stage adaptation of Junot Diaz's The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao, tonight with Angela, Chris, Robin and Lorraine. Diaz himself showed up and sat two rows behind us.

At intermission, I told Adam: "I like the play better than the book." Then I realized how much my voice carried -- and cringed.

His response: "Watch out. He might smack you with his Pulitzer."

This is so doofy I've been avoiding saying it, but it's been lurking in the back of my mind for a day or so now...

When I read this, I imagined how the scene would have played out five or ten years from now, at the Ice Capades version -- Oscar!, maybe, or as part of a Nerdz On Ice kinda thing.

I think his feelings will be much more hurt then.
