What would Margo do if she had just seen the worst play of her life?

Is a bad day at the theatre better than a good day at work or a moderate day of fishing? No. As good as great theatre is, transcending life so to speak, bad theatre ruins more than just the evening.

What would Margo do? Not a whiskey drinker usually, she may just have a short one so she could lie to the show's producers at the opening reception.

What would Margo Channing do if she was the parent of 5 teens?

She would certainly try boxed wine. She is no one to bow to convention.

What would Margo Channing Do?

Last night, after watching All About Eve on a cinema screen and seeing the lovely Celeste Holm with her 4th husband, a good 30 years younger than she, I thought a new blog was born.

What would Margo do about her son's report card with 2 Fs and a D and a prospect of a parent-teacher conference day? Don't forget - the son is on an academic scholarship at a respected Jesuit high school.

She would curl up in with her best bedjacket, drink a glass of champagne, and begin rereading her favorite novel. "Fasten your seatbelts. It's going to be
a restful night."
