Walsh gets her pressure garment today.
It's a wetsuit/superhero costume type thing you wear, custom-made around each individual burn site, designed to hold the skin tight, increase circulation and help with eventual coloration return. You're supposed to wear it 23 hours a day for at least a year.
23 hours a day for at least a year.
It's like a superhero costume because you wear it under your clothes, it's skin-tight and it can withstand bullets and any gravitational force. Not 100% certain about that last part, but I'm pretty sure it's true.
I was Super Meeting Man yesterday, mastering agendas and faster than a speeding bullet point. Great lunch meeting with Magda Aboulfadl and David Diamond from Community Board 5.
Magda, besides having one of the world's all-time best names (just say it out loud to yourself three times, it also has magical properties) is an old gymnast crony of my little sister Mern from the halcyon days of the St. Louis 70s.
Didn't know there were gymnast cronies, did you? O yes. They stand around flipping backwards and balancing on things, wise-cracking and staring people down. A tough bunch and very flexible.
And David Diamond is just like the sutra he's named after, calm, lovely and full of good ideas. I pitched the old Liberty Theater museum/beer garden/performance complex/ scheme at him and it looks like we're going to take over the world, the two of us, one performance space at a time.
He's probably reading this now, so I'll just say that he had the tuna on toast, I had the tuna no toast and Magda had the biggest Greek salad I have ever personally seen, it was obscene the way she just kept eating that big salad, and I'll leave it at that.
Crazy big salad, ordered by a gymnast crony, sitting next to me while I'm trying to conduct my business.
I'm just going to move on, if that's all right with everyone.
Enormous salad, man.
Then we had the big Free Night of Theater planning session. Circle the date, October 16th and get ready to...ahhh... see a free night of theater. Or something.
Still working out the details on that one.
Pretty open day today, just the pressure garment business, so I'm going to try to hole up and get some writing done. Working on the Acting textbook, a screenplay with my writing partner Weems and I still have to fix the ending of Captain Overlord.
Nice cool rainy day outside. Good day to lay low and get some work done.
Go see The Accidental Patriot. Go now. Not a thing you want to miss. Also heard that Me down at the Ohio is pretty great.
Cuteness on one, Rose.
ENGAGE CUTE POWERS!
