Misplaced: “Woody Allen and his jazz band are playing Paris on Christmas night! How great would that be to see”
40 year old: “I have a real problem with Woody Allen concerning the Soon-Yi thing”
30 year old: “He slept with his daughter!” she looks at me accusingly.
What I should have said was , “Oh my God, I know- I'm talking about picketing the event. You in?” Instead I say.
Misplaced: “Actually he didn’t sleep with his daughter or step daughter. Soon-Yi wasn’t related to him.”
20, 30, 40:
30 year old: “You want to re-think that?”
Misplaced: (digging in deeper) "No, people always say he slept with his step-daughter, he didn’t. He might have slept with his ex-girlfriends daughter- who was of legal age but it wasn’t his daughter. (at this point I forget the point I’m making) I don't think they ever proved he slept with her- he did have naked pictures of her...but..."
<20,30,40, again, very quiet. The 20 year old scoots her chair away from mine.>
Misplaced: He and Mia weren’t even married. So you see it wasn’t his daughter or step-daughter or anything like that… So...anyway- You all want to go?
The conversation awkwardly shifts to a new topic.
Side note: Woody and Soon-Yi have been married for 10 years. Now they are related...then they weren't, y' know ...related.
