It's been over a week since my final performance as The Genie and as of today, all of the blue makeup is officially gone.
And my dignity has returned.
Not to imply that children's theatre is undignified. Not in the least.
But when random strangers keep telling you that you have something blue on your face, which they then proceed to take off by spitting in their hand and smearing it all over your face, your dignity tends to take a holiday.
Which is why I've chosen a winning caption that is not only comedically complimentary, but also references one of my earliest loves.
I'm not sure if Angel from Angel's Crash Pad even meant for this to be a caption, but any reference to Family Affair deserves a best caption win...
I love it, Angel! My mother tells me that I was obsessed with "Family Affair" in my first few years of life; that I would sit completely still and watch it whenever it was on.
Of course I did. Charaters named Buffy, Jody and Cissy. Sebastian Cabot as Mr. French. It's like "Gay 101." (What's "Gay 202" you ask? Paul Lynde, Hollywood Squares Center Square)
This week's pic is a little less obvious, but I believe it is ripe with possibilities...
There's something about a guy holding his shirtless (naked?) dorm mate up while giving us that gesture along with that look that just begs for a caption.
Helping out half naked (or completely naked?) dorm mates when they've been drinking too much. Why, oh why, did I NOT want to live in the dorms in college?!?
Give these boys a caption. While I play out the rest of this little "Real Stories of College Life" episode in my head. Over and over...
