Another Letter to Jim

I know you've been hanging around the theater (it's not nice to give Val the creeps, by the way), but I doubt you've seen CiCi's bio in the "Romeo and Juliet" program. Among other things she says:

"CiCi would like to dedicate her performance to the memory of her beloved theatre teacher, Mr. Prior, without whom she never would have discovered Sam Bass, and who always told her, "Kid, you've got it!"

You know what, Jim? I cried on Sunday, when she said, "This is thy sheath...there rust and let me die!"

You have missed out on seeing one of your prize pupils play the role as if it had been written for her. You denied her the pleasure of making you cry.

You son-of-a-bitch!

I miss you.


  1. There must be so many memories in that Theatre for you...bitter sweet, I'm sure.

  2. Oh, Mgt! You have no idea!

    It is sometimes so hard. I think he's going to walk around the corner!

  3. Second year is tough--but you will make

  4. Sending love and thoughts your way!

    Tomah Belle

  5. I still feel him there watching me, chowing down on his cough drops...

  6. He is there. I bet he has seen you. The thing that happened with BJ and the shoes opening night of "The Oldest Profession" proves he knows what is going on.
