|Lan Lan with bouquets of assorted cut flowers|
In turn, Lan Lan and I got to enjoy the flowers she received on opening night. I saw the production on three occasions and -- as the consummate Stage Door Johnny -- brought flowers each time. Were the flowers really for Trixie? Yes, but in terms of the time spent staring at them and fussing over them, I think Lan Lan and I enjoyed the flowers more than anyone else. Bean only cares about orchids. Riley tried to eat the raffia and greenery. Flowers don't dispense treats, so Griffin was completely disinterested.
"Annie" has given the house more than an excuse to have buckets of flowers. The songs are easily adaptable to cute cat songs ("NYC" as "Little Bean," just think about it....) and, when the cats misbehave, I threaten to send them to Miss Hannigan's orphanage.
