The Cosmic Kid....

.....Is Coming To Town

And we've got tickets.

All of us.

C., Bigger E, littler e., and me too.

All of which has led to a fury of set-list and tea-leaf reading trying to figure out what we will see and hear.

I figure I'd like the current Set 'A', just for a 10 or 12 minute version of 'Kitty's Back!' although given the Phantom's unfortunate illness I'm not so sure that's gonna happen by the time the Circus comes to Lotusland

But then I stumbled upon a rumour that 'Growin' Up' might be in the mix.

Given how important that soaring excercise in self-preservatory fantastgoric-flim-flammery was to me when I was a kid, well......

I couldn't help blurting out, to no one in particular, something about how I might start balling if they did actually play it.

littler e., who was sitting across the Subterranean Blues Room (ie. the basement cubby hole where we keep our mind-control boxes) heard me and just said, kind of matter-of-factly:

"But I've never seen you cry before Dad."

Which is very strange thing for an 8 year old to say, indeed.

Then again, littler e. has never seen me 'stand stone-like at midnight, suspended in my masquerade' before either.
