The Bad Idea Bears
I scraped together some money and finally saw "Avenue Q" on Broadway the other night, and I must say, it didn't disappoint. It was the most I've laughed in quite a while. I loved it! The writing was incredibly witty and the production was SO clever. I found the above characters especially endearing. They continually showed up throughout the story, looking all cute and fuzzy and friendly. Only, they NEVER had the protagonist's best interests in mind. On the contrary, they encouraged mindless fun with no thoughts of consequence. How could anyone resist them? I know I couldn't. Even when they were squeaking out suggestions such as, "C'moooonnnnnn, just ONE MORE Long Island Iced Tea!" and, "Here's a noose, hang yooouuuurrrsssseeeeellllffff!", they were completely adorable. Hmmmmm...reminds me of some friends/aquaintances I've had.
I worry that I have FOUR of those little bears following me around. How about you?
