I hope you don’t object to the idea that every object has a story, including all the objects in the photos I took during the last day and night of my week-long visit to Los Angeles:
I go for days like yesterday, with many objects having interesting stories (did you notice that the popcorn at Dynasty Typewriter had the story that it was “world famous?”)
Last night, I shared stories with the object of my long-time admiration, affection, and gratitude, Ron Lynch.
I don’t think other comedians would object to my describing Ron as a comedian par excellence and the host of the Tomorrow!, show, now at L.A.’s Dynasty Typewriter at the Hayworth. I didn’t object when Ron asked me to warm up the audience last night at Tomorrow! last night, so I performed my original song with the perhaps objectionable title “I Don’t Like You.”
Don, one of the guys working the show last night …
…. didn’t object to capturing the story of my performance with his cell phone. The story Don gave me is that he is going to send me the video of that performance soon.
My story right now is that I am exhausted from my early morning flight back to Boston, so I’ll have more stories tomorrow. I look forward to the objects of your stories in the comments section, below.
I will now end this post with objective and subjective gratitude to Ron, Irv Yalom (who was interviewed via Skype on the last day of the American Group Psychotherapy Association conference), the Westin Bonaventure Hotel, Dynasty Typewriter, Don, the other people at Tomorrow! last night, the city of Los Angeles, the L.A. Central Library, Ron’s and his girlfriend Shelly’s Corgi-mix dog (an object of three of the photos above), every other person, animal, location, and object who helped me with today’s blogging story, and — I hope you don’t object to being last on this long list of thanks — YOU!
