“Squelching Al’s Exhuberance” has always been the title of a play that lies half-written in my mind. This play has to do with living your life for someone else, only to discover, upon dying, that all you lived for is turned on its head. It sounds a little morose and whiny, but actually the humor is quite raucous. I will write it. One day. But in the mean time, I’ll steal the title and blog for a while.
