Wednesday nights at Casa de Armed Liberal are “boy’s nights.” Tonight Littlest Guy and I are finishing the DVD of ‘Into The Woods,’ one of my favorite Sondheim musicals. He & his brothers have enjoyed Sondheim since they were small children; Biggest Guy called my tape of ‘Sunday In The Park With George’ “man singing,” and it was one of his favorites.
Tonight, we’re watching the moving finale, and as the cast moves into the climactic “You Are Not Alone,” 9-year old LG says “You know, I think this is going to make me cry. I’ve never watched something that made me cry before.”
That made me misty.
