Fun fact find of the day

When Andre the Giant was a boy, Samuel Beckett used to drive him to school — in the back of his truck because that’s the only place he’d fit. All they would discuss was cricket. The absurdity of this situation — the future professional wrestler and adored star of “The Princess Bride” growing up carted by a future Nobel playwright of the existential — cries out for a play. Maybe I should write it. (I know Ionesco would have, had it occurred to him.)

    I read that charming little story on the Geekosystem. What I draw from this story is that one should be happy in one’s own place. I live near New York City, and go there about 2 times a year, but I live a very simple life about 100 miles from this capital of finance and culture. My point is, magical things are available to everyone, no matter where they live.
