SIngles Night at the A&P. Bill and I rushed to get there. Brad came with us. One look at Brad and you’d see his last name wouldn’t be Pitt. But, like us, he was desperate for the love of a good woman.
“An inspiration, guys. See the babe in the bread aisle?” We did … va-va-voom! “Observe.” Brad disappeared around the corner. Seconds later, the silence erupted with the crash of two shopping carts, Brad’s and hers.
I turned to Bill. “You think he’s onto something?”
“If not, I’ll buy the ice pack, you buy the smelling salts.”

Rochelle and I stood before the cheering crowd and paparazzi, cheesing it up for the cameras. Two more names, yes, Kansas City natives, would be added to the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Rochelle grinned, I leapt like a school girl.
“Who knew we’d actually be here someday? I’m dreaming!
“And look! We’re next to Mike Nichols and Elaine May. Awesome!”
“What say you, writing partner?”
“I’d say our ship has arrived.”
Rochelle was right. As they presented the star to Jason Sudeikis and Rob Riggle, Rochelle and I hopped back on to the TMZ Tour Bus.
“A thing of beauty is a joy forever.”
Forever certainly didn’t have a good shelf-life, did it?
