...for two 8 year olds.
The girls were lovely, but Teresa and I were attacked the second we walked in. It was kind of like that scene in BARBARELLA where Jane Fonda is surrounded by those little walking dolls with sharp, mechanical teeth that begin to eat her flesh.
Yeah, like that... but nicer.
One of my standard questions when I'm signing autographs or attending one of these birthday parties is, "What was your favorite part of the show?"
One little girl answered. When she described her favorite part in full, I realized that what she MEANT to say was "the curtain call," because of the fun choreography Ernie did for the final song, GREEN EGGS AND HAM.
What she ACTUALLY said was...
Stephen as The Cat: "What was your favorite part of the show?"
Little 8 year old girl: "The end."
I laughed that loud, obnoxious laugh that I'm known for. It was the perfect response to my question. And one I will use when other people ask me what part of their play or musical I liked best from now on.
You've been warned.
