Just for the record, you can't win.

You really. can't. win.

So that critic from 2 posts ago didn't like our play. No huge shock; it's brand new. It's the new kid at school and it's bound to get picked on.

I happened to click on a review of a friend's play, a known, well-established play, an award-winning, proven play by an award-winning, internationally known playwright.

First sentence:

Irish playwright Martin McDonagh ("Pillowman," "The Beauty Queen of Leenane") is the shock jock of contemporary theater, and you're either turned on by his mock violence or not.

I find it infantile and numbingly tedious.
You cannot fucking win, so go have fun. Step away from your computer, Lacy. It's a beautiful day outside.
