tails Last summer while attending the Bag-n-Baggage summer fund raising Gala, my sweet husband, Brian won the grand prize of the “heads and tails” game. All through the evening B’nB’ sold cheap beaded Mardi Gras necklaces for a king’s ransom, with the intent of using them as a part of the last fundraising game. Being the shrewd mathematician that he is, right before the game started, Brian bought all the remaining strands and kept his hands on his backside (see picture) as a coin was tossed and people had a choice to place their hands on their heads or behinds to try to stay in the game. (Guess right, keep your necklaces; guess wrong, give one up. Last necklace standing wins.) As all the others went down like flies, Brian still had an ample garland of cheesy necklaces, by keeping his hands on his tail and out-buying necklaces three to one over every other contender.
Our prize, besides helping BnB provide free performances of their productions to every high-schooler in the area, was the chance to select this year’s Shakespeare performance and the opportunity to invite 200 of our favorite friends and colleagues to join us at the last dress rehearsal of their production of LOVE’S LABOUR’S LOST, by William Shakespeare, Adapted by Scott Palmer. http://bagnbaggage.org/events/loves-labours-lost/
Please come join us on Wednesday, July 23rd at 7:30 for a fun and provocative romp with Willie the Shake! Send an email to ann@nickerson.net so that we can keep an approximate head and tail count. Be sure to bring your own lawn chairs, pillows, blankets, Vespas, whatever — or plan on sitting on the concrete.
The show is performed at the Tom Hughes Civic Center Plaza, 150 E Main Street, Hillsboro 97123. It’s at the corner of Main Street and First Street in Historic Hillsboro.
