Good afternoon. On the, phobic?, 3:15PM out of the City.
I’ve got leaves to pick up off my lawn. Lots of them. Thankfully, I also have children who are willing and able to help. We should be finished well before sundown. But, I need to start while there’s still light out.
Enough about my landscaping issues. Joe Besser, the Fifth of the Three Stooges, is here. Bears ski cap. Black down jacket with a (gasp) Patriots logo on the right side. He noticed me noticing him. I’ve had to look away awkwardly. Yet there is a neutral smoke on his face. Does he think I find him attractive?
Well, evidently I do, so am I attracted? Or, am I just reminiscing about silly, happy times watching the Three Stooges movies on the UHF channels with my maternal grandfather and laughing so hard that both of us, much to my mother’s horror, have squashed the plate of PB&J all over the new carpet and our clothes?
Here’s a bigger question. Is he trying to resolve gender questions in his own, well-insulated head and, in my personal retrospective, am coming off as interested in him? Was this the very (misinterpreted) signal that will have him go home, break up with his on-again-off-again girlfriend and hit the Boys town bar scene, meet a butch ex-Marine bouncer that teaches Zumba at old-folks homes during the week?
Probably not. Or “doth I protest too much?” Now, I’m just confused.
John Cleese is here. He is asleep, thinking about his early days out of Cambridge with Graham Chapman. He is recalling the excellent sketches both he and Graham wrote for David Frost, pre-Python.
Speaking of Mr. Frost, the Nixon interrogator himself is seated in the next bench over. He is seated next to a younger version of Hosini Mubarak. They have nothing to say to each other. Evidently the earlier interview was a little too button-pushy for the deposed Prime-Minister and far to staid and dry for the headlining TV interviewer.
David also noticed me pecking away as I glance over the crowd. I knew I was being obvious, but now it seems I am being too obvious. Must end the post soon
Also here are four Observers from “Fringe”, Porkins from Red Squadron, Janice Soprano, and Nat King Cole. All are armed.
Happy Friday. Safe travels.
