HAMILTON’S LIFE REALLY IS UNEXPECTEDLY FASCINATING. NO NEED TO GET EMBARRASSED. YOU’RE IN GOOD COMPANY.
I need to get back to reading it - I got through seven parts of the audiobook on my trip to DC last month but then when I marked it so I could pick up on the physical copy I realized they weren’t kidding about the audiobook being abridged. I was only on page three hundred something. (at least I’m on the Maria Reynolds affair so I can go DAMMIT a lot)
AND OH, I WILL. I WILL.
(not a play, it’s a musical, and I’ve completely memorized two out of the three songs I’ve heard from somebody’s low quality recording. It has everything. History! Great music! Amazingly clever lyrics.)
My sis was literally beside herself with joy when she saw it off-Broadway, and has assured me that I will love it. So much. (and considering the moment I finished listening to “Satisfied” I was like I NEED TO GO SEE THIS IN PERSON)
I WAS PLANNING TO ENJOY THE FUCK OUT OF MYSELF ANYWAY. AND NOW I’LL MAKE SURE TO THINK OF YOU AS WELL.
And I’ll prob take a field trip to Trinity Church the day after to pay my respects - that’s what my sister did and she said it was a great experience.
I’ll never look at a ten dollar bill the same way.
