Why You Want to Think Twice About Having Children

5451_1160613453228_1164540394_30523915_6390828_n Son James and I went to New York City this past weekend to see daughter Arielle's 340x_sleeper brilliant production of Tell It to Me Slowly in the NYC Fringe Festival.  On the train home, James, snapped the picture of me at left and published it on Facebook, requiring that I come clean about the real reason for the trip:  my auditioning for the role of the butler robot in a remake of Woody Allen's Sleeper.

Oh, to experience the Orb and the Orgasmatron!

UPDATE:  "Your son" in the comments is in fact "my son."  I was able to get access to the picture because Images-3 my son-in-law, Simon, tagged me in James' Facebook album, although ordinarily I do not have access because James refuses to "friend" me  (his brother has taken the same stance).  James explained this to me yesterday as his policy that he does not friend "adults."  I pointed out that he is 20 and therefore himself an adult.  He clarified this to mean "adults of your generation."  I then pointed out that Simon, whom he did "friend" is only two years younger than his mother.  His response was that by marrying his sister, Simon "married into" his generation.  This kid has to go to law school.  (BTW, the likeness to which James and Alan are referring in the comments - Lando Calrissian's assistant, is the one at the lower left.  I see the point.)

No, the audition was for Lando's assistant from Cloud City in the upcoming remake of "The Empire Strikes Back."

No, the joys of learning that doughnuts are health food.

James, You mean for the STAGE MUSICAL of The Empire Strikes Back! I hear Zach Efron has a great quiet Solo (though as Luke) near the end, "The Ambivalence I Feel, Now That I Have a Father." (....I keep trying to save him him, don't know why I even bother...) I am sure, James, you can ... relate.

I am not sure casting Miley Cyrus as Leah was such a great idea, but she does belt one out on "I Miss My Planet, Wish It Weren't Blown Up" (...I had a really great gig there, being queen was all sewn up...) which does have something of a country theme to it. She has to emote like she intuits that her daddy did it.

You have to think ten times before having children, twice is not enough.
