Well, no, good Rapaire. I understand your thespian impulses. I have trod the boards myself for a while and have no jealousy in me. I have had lines which, compared to your ruffian grunts, would sound like actual English!! Lines like "Where's your tobacco?" from All My Sons and "Whither goest thou, Everyman!??" from Everyman, a morality play, and even a whole song I sang solo from the stage of the Carnegie Junior Music Hall (which as you may know is right around the corner from NYC's Carnegie Hall) playing the deathless role of Tom Sawyer's brother Sid. But those days are long behind me, reduced to mere fodder in the splintering brilliance of blazing beingness as it Is Now. So I have no regrets for what Was Then; it all serves in our Quest for Perfection, a quest in which we are but humble vessels....
