This is the jigsaw puzzle my travelling companion selected from the "library" of our hotel to entertain us through the evening. She does things like this because she is able to walk away from a puzzle when she is tired or bored. She is also able to order wine and enter bookstores and know her limits, with only a marginal regard for what any of those does to my brain.
That is not my rant.
My rant is....
who decided that this group of people would hang out together in the Hereafter, and that they belong in paintings together?
Most importantly, what in the backyard F^#%$!@ is Bogie doing with these people?
Dean: 1955, aged 24 , car crash
Marilyn: 1962, aged 36, overdose
Elvis: 1977, aged 42, heart attack
Bogart: 1957, aged 58, cancer
They have the entire Other Side to roam around, and they choose to hang out together - in diners, bar rooms, in a...music store?
Bogie was in silent films, for crying out loud. He was born in 1899. Why would he befriend them?
Lauren Bacall is 85. Widowed at 33. I don't expect she has waited this long to have to squeeze into seedy master shots with this band of misfits. (Ha - I said Misfits)
Bacall, whom everyone calls Betty, except her husband, who called her Baby (shudderrr), strolls through the Pearly Gates and spots Tracy and Hepburn on the tennis courts.
