We were driving along, and came up along a ‘notorious’ (to us, anyway) spot where folks merging onto the highway have a yield sign, but virtually never actually yield. They just drive straight onto the road regardless of the traffic coming straight at them. It was already obvious that the four vehicles about to pull on had no intention of slowing down, much less yielding, and we’d hit the last one if we didn’t take that into account. Well, as anyone who understands the principles of defensive driving knows, it’s better to be alive and unharmed than right, so my husband slowed down accordingly. The last of the four cars pulled out in front of us, and we noticed the Transformers symbol stickers on the bumper, essentially Optimus Prime’s face:
To which my husband noted, “Well then, Optimus Prime can go first!”
I mean, would you get into a ruckus with Optimus Prime??
This is apparently the brain-child of Joss Whedon, put together during the writers’ strike. If you’ve ever enjoyed anything he’s ever done, then You. Must. Watch.
ACT ONE (Wheee!) will go up Tuesday July 15th.
ACT TWO (OMG!) will go up Thursday July 17th.
ACT THREE (Denouement!) will go up Saturday July 19th.
All acts will stay up until midnight Sunday July 20th. Then they will vanish into the night, like a phantom (but not THE Phantom – that’s still playing. Like, everywhere.)
Now, finally, the link to today’s review: Susan Strohmeyer’s hysterical The Sleeping Beauty Proposal.
