You may not have known, but Blue Cat is also an accomplished actor. In a recent production of Gypsy, the character Louise gets a stuffed cat for her birthday, and she says “Why are you Blue Cat – is it your birthday too?”
Or perhaps it was “Why are you blue, cat? Is it your birthday, too?”
In any case, Blue Cat can at least imagine that he was in the play – which was a pretty good one. (His scribe and his scribe’s wife both had a really good time watching it.) And they didn’t credit the sheep, either, so he doesn’t feel bad about not being in the playbill. (Although he did get into it eventually.)
Seen any good plays lately? Let Blue Cat know what you thought.
