The finest compliment

Postby jonesthecurl on Wed Jan 09, 2013 11:47 pm

Mrs thecurl spotted a man and his young son in a local restaurant reading the program from my show at the weekend. She asked if they'd enjoyed the show, and the Dad asked the youngster to repeat what he'd just said.
He said "Whoever wrote that show knew a LOT about fun!".

What a compliment.
And remember what the poet said – “in booty there is loot, and in loot booty.” Or sump’n like that.

Such a great thing to hear when you aren't expecting it. Congratulations! That is a true test when the father and son enjoyed it.

Lots of adults have told me they enjoyed the show, have even stopped me in the street to tell me how much they enjoyed the show. But I think that lad's comment is my favorite. Also, that's exactly what it was meant to be about. Fun.

I'll try to post some of it, though it'll lose a lot not being interactive. Waiting for DVD of recording to arrive.

Neat.
In the meantime, why not post an excerpt from the script?
