I just had dinner with Alex Ross, here for the Bard Festival. My conversation is greatly inhibited these days because any story I tell, the response tends to be, “Oh yeah, I read that on your blog,” so it suddenly occurred to me as we sat down that, since Alex and I read each other every day, we wouldn’t have a thing to say to each other. But we both thought for awhile and came up with some news we hadn’t blogged about.
Geez, now I can’t start a conversation by telling anyone I had dinner with Alex Ross. As Alex said, “Maybe we need to be a bit more mysterious.”
