Some months back, I challenged Jay Kirk to write a short story with the title "An Egg Story". I wasn't quite sure what he would do, but I was certain it would be a page and a half of something involving a chicken or perhaps our old assistant band director, "Egg". ("Egg", as we called him, wears a toupee these days.)
Little did I know, that I would receive in the mail a script which, by all accounts, is outstanding. This Egg Story goes much deeper than the envisioned challenge I made some months back, with fully developed characters and a compelling story-line.
I tell you this for two reasons. A) I really enjoyed reading this script by Jay. In fact, I am reading it for a second time now. B) I am constantly amazed at the many talents that my old friends have. Even though I have known them for some time, as the onion is peeled away, new discoveries are always waiting. Even one's with runny yellow centers. Well, that sounds wonderful. I'm going to get up and go make an omelet.
