Until soon

That’s all from me this week. The irrepressible Ms. Annie Reid takes over most Fridays, possibly including tomorrow. (We’re on a holiday schedule around here, so I make no promises.)

In other news, did you know a drama critic’s job is never done? Even when he’s stricken with congestive heart failure.

“So you’re a drama critic, huh?” one of them asked as they carried me down the stairs. “My grandma is coming to town for Christmas — I want to take her to a show. What do you suggest?”

“Oh, definitely The Trip to Bountiful,” I said, my voice muffled by the mask. “I guarantee she’ll like it.”

Get well, Terry. If I catch you blogging after midnight before you’re all better, there will be hell to pay.

As for the rest of you, have a good weekend.
