"I once played as a one-man show," I said. "Doubling with Mercutio wont be a problem.". The curtain was already up, and Dahlia Smithson—our fair sun, the snowy dove trouping with crows, the rich jewel in the Ethiops ear—had yet to appear backstage. This was not a surprise. The last two nights wed had to winch her loveliness into the balcony and tie her down to keep her from falling out."Youre out of your mind," shouted Larry "The Leech" Crocker, our producer-director-stage manager: the wax in the Ethiops ear.

Eventually, the phone started to make that buzzing noise they make when a receiver is off the hook. Its twenty times as loud as any sound a phone can normally make, and I always wondered why. As though it was such a terrible disaster: "Emergency! Your telephone is off the hook!!!". Phone answering machines are one of the small annoyances of life.
