My musical friend Kelly Flint, an extraordinary singer-songwriter, fantastic mom and all-around amazing person, posted this on facebook. I’m sharing it here, too, since it’s in keeping with the theme of Will You Miss Me When I’m Gone?
Thanks, Kelly! (If you don’t know Kelly, you should. She was the voice and auburn-haired singer in NYC band Dave’s True Story, which grabbed the national spotlight with “Crazy Eyes” and “Sequined Mermaid Dress,” which were on the soundtrack of the 2001 cult film Kissing Jessica Stein. With DTS on an open-ended hiatus, Kelly’s been pursuing a solo career as a folksinger. Be sure to check out her site or her MySpace!

I’ve found in this bar tonight.” E-Flat comes back
the next night in a 3 piece suit with nicely shined shoes. The
bartender says, “You’re looking sharp tonight. Come
on in, this could be a major development.”
Sure enough, E-Flat soon takes off his suit and everything else,
and is au naturel. Eventually, C sobers up and realizes in horror
that he’s under a rest. C is brought to trial, found
guilty of contributing to the diminution of a minor, and is
sentenced to 10 years of D.S. without Coda at an upscale
