[on a scale from wit to whimsy: Funny]
My daughter, who has the utmost patience even for things like the appendices of Tolkien’s books, says Waiting for Godot was the most boring thing she’s tried to read (besides poor, dear Hemingway, who she says endlessly repeats himself—in which case, we are waiting for Hemingway… to get to the point).
“It might have been better as a play,” she told me about Godot.
Or it might have been better as a comic, as it turns out. I think I’ll share this post with her and set the universe back in literary balance.
