Happy Holidays


Today I saw Carrie Fisher's one woman show Wishful Drinking. If you have the chance to see it, I suggest you do.
It's very funny. I won't spoil it by trying to describe it, just go see it.

Things got ugly after the show. We were driving through Westwood to have dinner. As usual, the streets were busy. Two lanes, including ours, were turning left when I noticed a young woman slowly crossing crossing the street while fiddling with her cell phone. The car next to us pulled forward a bit to get out of the way of an impending light change. The young woman took offense and stopped, stood in the way of the car then held out her hands as if to ask"What's your problem?". She then topped the whole scene off by displaying a lengthy flip of the middle finger at the drivers before slowly walking away. I couldn't believe it. When we pulled up next to our assaulted friends we could see the driver and passenger were two tiny elderly ladies! I'm still so mad at that idiotic girl. 'Tis the season and all. Imagine what the princess of darkness must be like when its not so merry and bright out.

I lived in Chicago for many years and saw similar scenes many times. It's too bad that people are so stressed these days that they take it out on perfect strangers.
