For reasons that I’m not currently at liberty to say, our regular insanely ramble-some and spectacular pint of firecracker, Sarah Larson, isn’t here this week to offer up the mid-week comment diversion. Let’s just say: When she returns, she’s going to have one hell of a story to share. It’ll probably start in one place and end in a completely different and unexpected place, just as her comment diversions do, but it’ll no doubt blow your sock strings out. I can’t wait for her to get back and share it.
In the meantime, I’ll offer up a comment diversion from Scorzi, who asks: “What movie/tv character’s name do you wish you had and why?”
Scorzi has “always been partial to Smokey Lonesome from Fried Green Tomatoes just because it’s fun to say. It sounds like an organic brand of barbecue sauce put out by Sam Shepard.”
She also insists that The Dude not be used, as it’s too obvious.
I’m picking Boner from “Growing Pains.” (RIP Andrew Koenig.)
