THAT AGED WELL
Yesterday's Pop Culture, Today
Paul and Erika met when his freshman roommate told him that a girl with “excellent posture” was coming over. Their college friendship blossomed when they performed in a two-person play together their junior year. All were delighted by the production and the players. After college, they solidified their adult friendship by getting drunk and watching the Olsen twin vehicle New York Minute in the theatre with smuggled pints of Ben & Jerry’s.
Erika is a Miami native who doesn't mind when Bianca del Rio gropes her (see left). BdR also compared her to Velma from Scooby-Doo, which remains a high compliment. She would tell you about her rent-controlled New York City apartment, but she doesn't want to make you jealous. Sometimes she worries about spending her life savings on theatre tickets, but then she stops worrying and buys another season pass to the Roundabout. Once, her boss threw a printer at her, but it wasn't personal. And her boss missed.
Paul did not drink all the wine in this photo but he helped. He has lived in New York City for more than twenty years and he’s never been to the Empire State Building. He’s upset daily that he hasn’t seen Bette Midler or Cher in concert. He lost faith in the Oscars the year Crash won. Yes, he has seen that Golden Girls and/or Buffy
episode. His current favorite Cards Against Humanity play is “Being a motherfucking sorcerer.”
