Brush Up Your Shakespeare

My friend, Anti-Blog Man, recently posted that he and his wife are taking swing dance lessons, and he was surprised that the teacher applauded his skill (or was she hitting on him?). But I was not surprised, having performed this very special song and dance number with him during our sophomore year of college. The show was “Kiss Me Kate” and it was a fun time for both of us to spend with Kristi–his future wife and my future best friend. Our character’s names were Gangster #1 and Gangster #2. We had actually spent hours in the Ekklesia van practicing our Brooklyn accents, on days that we weren’t steaming mad at each other. In fact he and I argued so often, usually me representing the girls and him representing the guys, that on days that we actually agreed on something, we called it All Star day, and laughed and laughed as we handily won any disgreement with the others. Good times, those!
