|Elizabeth Taylor as Maggie the Cat in "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof"|
I know ya'll think of me as the Ellen Burstyn character in Requiem for a Dream, but what if I told you to imagine me as Elizabeth Taylor in Maggie the Cat's white slip, languorously standing in the doorway of my bedroom, come hither --
Do you know that the Powers That Be called this morning and cancelled the NEUROLOGICAL appointment? They acknowledged that they had gotten sufficient information from The Neurologist (Sophie's regular one) that I had directed them to call when in my former Ellen Burstyn mode and had decided that yes, indeed, Sophie was sufficiently disabled to warrant continued SSI.
Imagine that, my friend Jenni texted me earlier when I told her.
Yes, imagine that!
Thank the animal gods, thank the universe, thank my lucky stars, the good Lord, Jesus Christ, Allah, Muhammad, the Buddha, and Ellen Burstyn.
Thank Elizabeth Taylor for giving me an out.
