This Week in Janice

28 Mar

Here are some emails from my 58-year-old mother, Janice. I should probably mention that due to circumstances beyond her control, she is heavily medicated at all times.

Janice in 1968


E-mail 1) Background: I lived in a Chicago suburb called Wilmette until I was eight. Then we moved.

Subj: local news for U

Double murder/ suicide in Wilmette this morning. (And you wonder why I wanted to move when you were in third grade). Ask your pals if I made the right decision in retrospect. Love You, Take care, MOM


Background: I needed to talk to people for an article but they weren’t calling me back. Here is my mom’s attempt at helping:

Subj: still need interviews?
Had a thought. Richard Marx is big time music name and his 3 sons are all at your old high school. Bet he would let you interview him if he knew you were a local kid.

Also, what about Mr. Faullty Towers- he of the great commercials, of late–or, for a severe long shot- Bill Murray- but I think he NEVER does interviews–Wilmette boy and Loyola Academy grad. Harold Ramis and family were around here somewhere. (Then you would have all of “Ghostbusters”???)

And there are lots of Pivens and Cusacks. I think the  Cusack Sister and family are now in (nearby town). There is also a woman from “Housewives of the O.C.” who now lives near me. See, you have connections with more celebs than you thought. Are some of these suggestions too old??  Do you want me to ask around and find out what Sports stars are currently living here?

Take care, Love, MOM
My response: Thanks, mom. That’s really sweet of you, but none of these people have anything to do with what I’m writing about.

Janice’s response: But if you talked to Bill Murray, do you think anyone would notice? No-HE is bill Murray!
