I fell today on a Boston city sidewalk that was under construction.
Both sides were torn up, and only one side was closed to foot traffic. So pedestrians were walking through the debris on the other side.
Of course, I was the one who tripped and fell.
In a suit.
Wearing black pants.
A member of the crew immediately rushed over to make sure I was okay. I was more concerned about the state of my pants, so she returned lickety-split with water and towels. And when she realized I had cut and bruised one leg, she insisted on driving me to my class at BU.
She was thought I would sue the city.
That didn’t even cross my mind…until she told me the crew shouldn’t have torn up both sides of the walk at the same time. And they should have closed the sidewalk that everyone was walking on (and that I fell on). And she represented the city, and the crew didn’t always listen to her rules and regulations.
I don’t know — maybe my leg hurts more than I realize!

This is my friend Wendy Molyneux and her sister Lizzie.
They are writers for Bob’s Burgers on FOX, and last night, they very deservedly won their very first Emmy Award!
Build a special shelf at your respective homes ’cause I am very sure…
This is just the first of many!

It’s no accident that the movie poster for What If places good friends Wallace and Chandry at a diner.
The film is clearly trying to be the When Harry Met Sally for this generation…and does a decent job.
Daniel Radcliffe and Zoe Kazan are quirky and appealing, their friendship believable, their banter quick and smart.
She has a boyfriend (who made me laugh), and Daniel has emotional baggage — plus best friend Adam Driver of Girls who has huge energy…and is huge standing next to Daniel (which is pretty funny right there).
This is a rom-com, so there are misunderstandings, yearning, romantic postcards (in this day and age), implusive international flights, fist fights, and at least two weddings — babies, too.
What if that stuff still worked in films?
You know — it kinda does.

Add this to the list of things that your parents never tell you…
There is a professional tour for miniature golf.
The 2014 US Open Miniature Golf Tournament starts today in nearby Oceanport, New Jersey at the Bluegrass Miniature Golf Course.
And if we wanted to, you and I could play!
We just have to declare ourselves professionals and join the US ProMiniGolf Association. (The fee is $25.) Then there’s the US Open tourney fee of $100. It’s a par 40 course without the typical windmills and clowns, and the winner takes home $3,500.
(So, don’t expect to see Tiger or Rory in the lineup.)
And get this — men and women play together. In fact, the favorite is a 19-year girl from the Czech Republic who has won all the miniature golf majors this year.
This tour sounds way more fun than the PGA — am I right???

Have you seen a yellow ribbon on a dog’s leash while out in your neighborhood? It’s not a fashion statement.
It means a whole lot more.
The Yellow Ribbon Project is a quick visual signal that a dog needs a little extra space. It’s for your — and the dog’s — protection.
