Two weeks ago, I did an improv show. Another Cage Match, this time with a team I’d never improvised with before. I’d met Michael a couple times, and he invited me to do the show, but the other two people I’d never met in my life.

We had an okay show, but lost (the other team was very good). After the show, standing in the lobby of IO West, a girl came up to me and told me that I was very funny. It was a nice thing to have happen, especially since I wasn’t sure if I’d been any good at all.

I am mentioning this two weeks late for a reason. I was just going through all past Wren Forum posts in a project not worth mentioning (I’m attaching categories to everything so they can be browsed via yet another variable). I had completely forgotten about this incident last year. How could I have forgotten someone who had an embarrassingly amusing approach to doling out the love?

I was home sick (again) yesterday. The benefit was that I got to finish a book I had gotten half-way through, then got to start and finish a second book. The books couldn’t have been more different: Assassination Vacation by Sarah Vowell, and The Penultimate Peril, the 12th Series of Unfortunate Events book by Lemony Snicket.

The funny thing was that each of these books used a very uncommon French phrase. The fact that they would both use this phrase and I would read it on the same day was entirely amusing.

The phrase was noblesse oblige.

I know, right?
