    I think there's an equal amount of intellectual pretentiousness and goofiness in social media. I Google words and topics all the time when writing and reading -- I've learned a lot by doing so!

    I haven't seen or read the play you're referring to, but I did play Stella in "A Streetcar Named Desire" when I was in college. :-)

    I love that you read the play. That says a lot about your character.

    Well you made me think today anyway...so that made the waiting better.

    I read the play online so who knows if it was even the right play, lol...it could have been some Canadian grad student's interpretation...I was curious with all the 'ehs' at the end of the sentences.

    You have done some quality work here. I hate to admit it but "Godot" escaped me. Depending on the day, I would have either laughed along with you or asked, "what does Godot mean?" That could have been uncomfortable. When I read the word "Godot," the exhausted hampster spinning the creaky wheel in my mind started obsessing over its meaning. "Godot"? Is that similar to "bogo"? There is far too much lingo these days. G-O-D-O-T. "Get one . . . get one down . . . curses, what does it mean?" So thank you for the explanation, which, while educational, leaves me wanting. "The riddle, so far, was now unriddled." But why the name "Godot"? That doesn't sound the least bit Russian. The wheels go round and round. Off to wiki. And you must read Streetcar. The dialogue alone has a rhythmic cadence.

    Funny, I picked up the Godot reference after reading about the play in the book "The Namesake" by Jhumpa Lahiri (a book I highly recommend btw) and by inference figured out the backstory to the source, but have yet to read it. You have inspired me. Keep up the great work!
