at the corner of Oh and Wow

So last night our friend Jerry came over. Jerry's an actor. He was playing Ford Prefect in the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy when I met Trillian. Those of you who have been reading this for a while may remember him as the Prince in Romeo and Juliet last summer.

So Jerry and Trillian and I are doing fabulous stuff -- this is not the fabulous stuff, by the way, you have to wait until October to see the fabulous stuff. Anyway, while we're doing this, Jerry says Oh, I was in Boston when you were and I thought about calling you, but I didn't want to bother you while you and Neil and Amanda were working.

Oh, I say, you should have called. What were you doing in Boston?

Oh, says Jerry, I was doing a radio play with Walter Freaking Koenig. We were in Boston for four days recording it.

(freaking mine)

Yes he was.



Did he say "nuclear wessles"? I ask.

"Nuclear wessles? says Jerry, he's from Chicago.

Then we watched The Night Stalker.

I'll be sure to let you know when the radio play hits the radio.
