Salvation Army Knife

Never bring a Swiss blade to a switch blade fight. I made that mistake once. It was in our high school production of West Side Story. I was one of the Jets. Well, we started to rumble and soon I heard one or two of the Sharks starting to laugh. Then more and more of them, and pretty soon even all of the Jets were laughing at me. I hadn't been that humiliated since I appeared without my codpiece in our forgettable attempt at Hamlet. There I was in my very tight tights. Playing the part of Ophelia was Carla Titianelli, who as a high school sophomore was already turning heads in every possible direction. Let's just say whenever she entered a scene I was very, very happy to see her. Well, eventually my acting career petered out altogether. I still miss it sometimes, but not nearly as much as I miss seeing Carla "strut and fret her hour upon the stage". Oh, believe me, that girl could strut!
