P.S. I try to hate musicals for my mother's sake, but I think I have too much of my grandfather's DNA in me to really hold any sort of proper grudge against them. Sorry, Mom.
I totally approve of your musical indulgence. Musicals are on constant shower rotation at my house. Perhaps your mother just has avant garde taste in musicals, like "The Threepenny Opera", if memory serves.
Yup, good memory, Alison.
