Dribbles and Drabbles -


RIDDLE ME REE

 

What is Luck?

Is it being in the right place at the right time?

Knowing the right people?

Or, is it Fate?

What is Fate?

Is it being in the right place at the right time?

Knowing the right people?

Or is it like Luck?

I don’t know. Do you?

METHOD ACTING

 

The actors, exhausted after the long run, were in the pub for farewell drinks before going their separate ways.

The play had been physically and emotionally demanding, not helped by Arthur, the leading man, refusing to step out of character; that of a sadist who ill-treated his wife.

Maria, the leading lady had borne the brunt.

‘It’s the way I work darling,’ he’d told her, ‘Nothing personal’.

‘Where’s Arthur? Isn’t he coming?’ enquired an understudy.

‘No’, answered Maria, ‘I bribed a stage hand to handcuff him to a radiator’, she grinned, ‘It’s just the way I work darling. Nothing personal’.

CO-PILOT

He thinks she likes it

When he ‘helps’ her drive the car

How wrong can he be?
