In the mid-late 80’s a friend of mine was practicing a scene from a play for an audition, I think it was something he chose himself. The passage opens:
“I’m a painter, Millie, a serious painter”
goes on for a bit and ends with (if I remember correctly)
“I think I just bombed out with a nymph”
It became a huge joke among our group of friends and when there was a lull, someone inevitably would say “I’m a painter, Mille- a serious painter!” with different affects and everyone would crack up. Good times.
Does anyone know what larger work this passage might be from?
Thanks in advance,
