Lenny Bruce is Not Afraid

with one comment

“It’s not the end of the world you fool! No, no, no! You sweet, beautiful, stupid boy, the world has only just begun! Get off that couch and go outside and see for yourself. The city is bustling and the world is very much alive.” She teased him and grabbed his coat from a nearby chair and tossed it his way.

“I can’t go out. I am in my pyjamas!” He pleaded.

“Are you mad?! In your pyjamas is the BEST way to go out! In fact, to ease your neurotic mind, I am going to put MY pyjamas back on. We’ll pretend that we are still students, eat breakfast in public, pyjamas on full display, and we’ll talk about solving the world economic crisis as if we’d actually passed Econ 101. Doesn’t that sound like the perfect start to the day?”

“But…I did pass Econ 101, and what would be the point in solving any crisis now?”

“Quiet you.” She disappeared briefly into the bedroom and returned in her pyjamas as promised. “Well?” She asked. He shrugged his shoulders and said nothing. “Some days I am not sure why I bother with you. You’re not THAT handsome.”

He leapt from the couch and put his arms around her. “I most certainly am!” He protested. “Let’s go then. I will solve the HELL out of any economic crisis you throw my way, and I will also look damn good while doing it.”

“That’s the spirit. If Lenny Bruce is not afraid, why should we be?”  She smiled.

“You’re as clever as you are adorable. I suppose you are right. If it were the end of the world, we wouldn’t be here, would we?”

“Certainly not. After all, we ARE the world. It can’t possibly end without both our verbal AND written consent.”

They both laughed and headed outside, pyjamas on display for the remaining world to see.
