annotation: “born”

Written by sdperlman

If you are clicking this, I can only assume that you are asking for my date of birth. This either means you believe in astrology and want to know my sign (Cancer, Ox), or you are trying to find a polite way to ask how old I am.

When you are a kid you’re taught it’s rude to ask someone that. As a performer I usually reply that I’m happy to tell someone, but I’d like them to tell me what their guess is. It weeds out a few inquiries.

Since we don’t have that luxury here: I was born in July, in the year when Tom Waits released Rain Dogs, and Paul Simon was still recording Graceland.
