A day in the life ...

To avoid putting words in your mouth, your part in today's playlet will be voiced by Charlie Brown's teacher.

[LIGHTS COME UP ON A STREET CORNER]

ME: Oh, hi! It's been awhile.

YOU: Wah wah, wah wah wah.

ME: I know, I've been busy for the past week.

YOU: Wah wah!

ME: That long? Wow, a month sure goes by fast.

YOU: Wah wah wah?

ME: Not much. You know, stuff ... keeping busy.

YOU: Wah wha?

ME: Well we saw a great production of "Hamlet" at Coho last week. Oh, we also saw Avatar. Finally! The last ones in the world to see it.

YOU: Wha wah?

ME: Today? Today I had to work, even though it's President's Day. That sucks. But I did see five guys walking around in President masks today. Here, look: I took a picture on my cell phone.



YOU: Wah wha wha wha?

ME: The second guy who looks like a black John Kerry? I think that's supposed to be Obama.

YOU: Wah wah wha.

ME: Right back atcha. Hey, I gotta get back to work.

I never understood why, in the Charlie Brown Universe, as soon as you hit puberty, your visual and aural presence is reduced to a series of unintelligible sounds.
