Slippery When Wet

I had Indian Food for dinner last night, and over curry Esther Williams came up, as she does sometimes.

When I got home I asked Shorty to re-read the first chapter of Million Dollar Mermaid, Esther's late-90s memoir that I so love. I remember there was a line in that opening chapter that made me take it home from the bookstore.

So, he sat in the new chair and did just that:

And lo, there it was!

"Nobody was going to make multimillion-dollar aqua-musicals ever again." You don't find many lines better than that. Thanks, Esther.

Also, remember when we in the book biz used to make tchotchkes to promote our wares? Here's something you can print out and make at home! Ask an adult to help with the scissoring.
