While James Asal Jr. takes a break, I thought I’d share one of his posts from last spring that I really enjoyed (and could relate to – guess which character is me and which is Sergio).

One week from today, Friday, April 28th is opening night for Boston Ballet’s production of The Sleeping Beauty, which will run through May 27th at the Boston Opera House.

For those unfamiliar with this popular ballet, The Sleeping Beauty begins with the christening of Princess Aurora. All the fairies are invited to bestow gifts on the young princess, except for the Fairy Carabosse, who is outraged and gives a spindle to Aurora, announcing that one day the princess will prick her finger on it and die. The Lilac Fairy who has yet to present her gift, undermines the curse by promising Aurora will not die but fall into a deep sleep for 100 years until awakened by a prince’s kiss. As predicted, Aurora pricks her finger on a spindle on her 16th birthday. The Lilac Fairy intervenes and puts Aurora and her kingdom under a sleeping spell. A century later, Prince Desiré meets the Lilac Fairy who leads him to Aurora. His kiss breaks the spell and the ballet concludes with a grand wedding celebration.
Once again I’m featuring the handsome Peruvian chef, Franco Noriega, for a Furry Friday post. I don’t expect I’ll get any complaints.
Past Furry Friday Posts
Each Friday morning I post a riddle to get you to think outside the box and exercise your brain. If you are stumped, share it with a friend or colleague and see if you can figure out the answer together.
I’ll confirm answers in the afternoon so don’t worry if you don’t see your comment posted right away. I want to give everyone a chance to guess.
This week’s brain teaser:
Seen in the sea and seen in the sky
Forever differs from eye to eye
Most see it in nature, some see it in pi
Its appearance is rarely, if ever, asked why.
