Thanks For Clearing That Up


From today's New York Times Corrections:

Because of an editing error, a passage was omitted yesterday from a theater review of "Kicker," at the Connelly Theater in the East Village. The affected section should have read: "Exploring this theme in a play isn't a bad idea. It's just that Mr. Simonson's characters aren't the least believable, so the play is often less funny than simply embarrassing. In the opening scene, the novelist (James Lloyd Reynolds) acts so smarmy and superficial that no journalist with the slightest bit of experience would fail to see through him. It doesn't help that he and Matt Pepper, the actor who plays the journalist, Michael Gray, deliver their lines as if reading them from the script." (Go to Article)

Jus' so's there's no mistake: We didn't like your play.

"Kicker" continues at Connelly Theater, 220 East Fourth Street, East Village, through June 25.

Ha! After that review, I don't think so.

Well I like today's Shiny Thing.

They reminded me of my son's wedding. I ordered a box of 200 frogs with concealed squirt guns inside.

The idea was to load them with bubble liquid and when the bride and groom left for their honeymoon we'd attack them with these stupid-looking multi-colored frogs and blow bubbles at them rather than throwing the traditional rice (look, it was a garden wedding and I'm not your normal mother-in-law. Pity my son's wife.).

Somewhere in my house there is still a large box of unused frogs...
