The younger one tapped me on the shoulder and I removed my headphones. Here is our one and only conversation....
BOY: What's your name?
BOY: You look like my counselor from camp this summer.
ME: Oh, really? What was his name?
ME: Oh, well...he's not me. (smile)
BOY: I know.
Headphones back on.

WINE TEETH TICKETS
look at 'em...
Quite a week that was...
Also, last Wednesday was The Rejection Show. A little too hot and a little too long but other than that it was a great time. The performers were terrific. They had a great sense of what the show is all about. Thanks to Lang, Todd, Jessi, Marisa, Mort, Diffee, Adam, Peter, Bob, and Matt. The audience was enthusiastic and supportive. I can't ask for anything more than that. Thanks to Azalea for getting up and singing "Hello" by Lionel Richie for us. She kept going even though someone actually yelled out to me, "Please make her stop." It was a good time and we'll continue to try our best to improve on each show.
This is the most bloggiest blog entry I have ever blogged.

From Dekk's website about tonight...
7:30 PM DEKK-a-thlon -- GETTIN' IT DONE: Comedy You Can Count On.
10 Monday Nights. 10 events you don't want to miss. The Columbia School of the Arts students bring their best stuff to Tribeca every Monday night for a showcase of films, plays, comedy, and more.
This Monday, it's comedy night: "Laugh and the world laughs with you. Stay at home like a bum this Monday night, and you'll be alone. No, you owe it to yourself to make the trek down to DEKK on March 7 to see some genuine comedy. We promise you hysterics in both improv and stand-up forms. Enjoy the week before Spring Break. Because it's only Monday. You could use a few laughs."
Hosted by Sara Schaefer
Jon Friedman (of the Rejection Show)
plus a film by Don Hertzfeld
