His Play Write, My Summer 2013 Play Wrong!

by Teréza Eliasz-Solomon (HeiressMommy™)

Terrence McNally _Thomas KirdahlDuring the Summer last year my husband and I were visiting with acquaintances near the small town of New Hope, Pennsylvania. Passing the historic Bucks County Playhouse, our host mentioned their current production of Mothers and Sons by Terrence McNally – I enthusiastically told my day’s companions that I and my parents before me were huge McNally fans and that in fact, I believe I might have once met this genius writer at a Philadelphia event with my Father. All agreed it would be a wonderful idea to see his latest production but time probably would not allow us that opportunity as the play only ran for a few more days. Nothing unusual so far but as with so much in my REALLY serendipitous and always interesting life there is a caveat to this seemingly simple and mundane occurrence.

Just a few days later I found myself attending a meeting with the acquaintance of myself and my husband that had previously suggested we all see the play. As we walked to dinner where the plan was to discuss possibilities for my husband and my new venture, my companion realized we were quite near the Playhouse. We strolled past the billboard in front where I fawned over the play’s announcement – again expressing my admiration for Mr. McNally and the star, Tyne Daly. On this very hot East Coast evening in very high heels I was led by my evening’s host down toward the small gathering of the play’s professionals and arriving theater goers. It seemed [now and for future discussions a bit odd] that my host had previously met Thomas Kirdahy who apparently was involved in the play’s production in a very prominent way and as such introduced me  to this extremely charming man – my introduction led to questions and after discussing my studies and family, the chat turned to my planned books and blog. Mr. Kirdahy seemed interested and of course, I was only too eager to suggest he write down my contact information and take a look – as you are doing right now – at my blog essays. I was thrilled that he agreed and was careful to note the exact title of my work and then there was a small discussion that maybe my work could be a play someday along with publisher’s suggested plan for a movie. Oh my, I was thrilled and took the offer of free lemonade the playhouse was serving while being both beaming and excited.

Melting in that evening’s extreme heat and now anxious to both not wear out our welcome and also get this Friday night’s dinner meeting completed, I agreed to sit for a moment more at the the table where the play’s principals were waiting for curtain call outside – it was then that my “play wrong” faux paus occurred – I received a second introduction that went like this: while still standing I heard, “Tereza, this is Terrence“. I leaned over to shake the kind looking gentleman’s hand saying “Nice to meet you, what do you do?” Graciously my new acquaintance answered “I write plays” and then as I sat down said, “That must be interesting“. Yes I did – I said that to a man I have admired for many years and for some reason my dinner companion  – which I would have done if visa verse – did not take it upon himself to gently prod by reminding me that this was Mr. McNally [more in future writings about my later concluded reasons for that]. It does get worse my dear readers – after this ridiculous totally unexceptionable social misstep, I began to chatter away about my own writing – actually suggesting that Mr. McNally might enjoy reading what was then my most recent blog essay titled “My Special Relationship with Justice Scalia” – it was obvious we were both probably political Liberals and so there were a few guffaws about that essays title. Still oblivious we bid farewell and walked to our dinner reserved restaurant. Only then did it dawn on me that I had just met one of my favorite writers – an award winning and quite heroic gentleman. Oh my G-d, Oh my G-d, Oh my G-d … yes indeed that was my moment of  “I can not believe I did that”  happening.

There is a rather sweet follow up to this debacle. The next day I found that a special friend of mine and his husband were in fact seeing that evening’s production of this play. The day after my friend posted on Facebook photos of himself with Mr. McNally and Mr. Kirdahy and Tyne Daly – the play’s star – all of whom my wonderful friend and his husband seem very well acquainted with. Another Oh moment then as I realized I did in fact know that Mr. McNally and Mr. Kirdahy were married – having read that in the New York Times, etc.. Well now – I am fond of saying that I don’t do embarrassment – no that feeling is not in my emotional repartee. My life instead consists of realizations when wrong or offending another, that sincere apology is required, a life correction one might say is to be pursued as a regretful action might have been my mistaken course. With this in mind, I am thinking of just the right gift and note to send the couple of McNally and Kirdahy as explanation and apology for that hot Bucks County evening’s “can not believe I said that” moment!

P.S. In my year (2013) memoir, Heiress Mommy … A Modern Super Woman Life! and following Summer 2014 Life Journey of Heiress Mommy I hope to detail all the REAL facts of how dear husband and I ended up even being at that place, at that time that created circumstances leading to my meeting the great Terrence McNally – hint is that all did not turn out well with certain unseemly characters involved but still quite thrilled that I did meet the play write and his very accomplished husband, Thomas Kirdahy. As with so much in my life, my hope and prayer is that what is so blessed in my life through trial, tribulation and the subsequent REAL triumphs will help guide others to that gloried path!

Attack of The Miscreant Zombies !!!

by Teréza Eliasz-Solomon (HeiressMommy™)

ZombieOfOzJust when you thought they learned a lesson to cease and desist … they are back. Well , actually they never left in that advisers, attorneys and law enforcement remain involved and constantly vigilant in order to protect me and my family, plus prepare for upcoming litigatory situations. What you ask am I referencing? Oh you all know – it is The Miscreants™, THE REAL Evil Doers Club™ and THE REAL Devil’s Daughter™. Certainly if you follow me regularly and definitely if you know me personally, there is no REAL surprise here – in fact, many of you are in commiseration , act to  console and advise me on thwarting these loathsome creatures [for which I and hubby remain eternally grateful]. It seems the night crawlers are reading me on social media sites – odd as it seems, they can read but I do not doubt my large word verbiage and complex ideas leave them baffled and confused.  Truly exhausting is my task – I have tried to educate these sub-par individuals with REAL legal tutorial blog posts and my dear husband the same in a multiple page and quite definitive letter to starter wife’s attorney. Alas, the mental deficiencies and possible [seemingly apparent] derangement leaves them wanting for clarity as to the hows and whys of the legal morass they have placed themselves in this past year. Again, I find humor in their feeble attempts at insult toward me – I am without the posture to be offended on the utterances of fools and so I remain happy, content and confident in my life … but oh baby, am I ever going to enjoy Court dates with my well appointed, professionally coiffed and couture clothed self testifying against these horrible people. Equally great fun and that which hubby, I and those who love and support us are also looking forward to are the many articles, interviews and more where I shall present to them what REAL dignity and innate outer and inner beauty looks like. Exposing REAL life stories and deeds of such repugnant persons is pure justice and only that which their own actions have reaped. Fair is fair as they saying goes. Told publisher and my dear publicist to make sure many appearances to promote my books are booked for Michigan, Chicago and Pennsylvania – all places I love and that the zombies dwell within. Yes indeed, it is true what they say “payback is a REAL bitch” and vengeance is ALL mine this time. Difference between me and them … dear G-d there are too many to enumerate but for this post, lets say I/hubby dear do ONLY legal forms of retaliation, along with a bit of showing off our GREAT life and wonderful stuff – just enough to have miscreants eat their ugly evil hearts out. Hmm … not my usual style but what the hell, they REALLY deserve it – don’t you agree my darling readers?

That is all for now but rest assured that in my REAL year end (2013) memoir, Heiress Mommy … A Modern Super Woman Life! all the wonderfully salacious detail of what, when and how each of these referenced human beings exposed themselves for their pitiful existence and REAL crimes and self destruction in attempts to hurt me, my husband and REAL family will be shared.  For now know that I guffawed all morning when my REAL “internet ninja” shared the latest bogus suggestions from the miscreant zombies about my appearance, attire choices and writing ability – guess I should thank them for the early day frivolity!!!

P.S. I must admit that  the bottom dwellers have been good little students … I explained in previous legal tutorial blog posts that the upcoming lawsuits against them were on account of slander, defamation and harassment BUT they could, as can I or anyone else, insult, use hyperbole, argue with, share REAL opposing opinions – as such and for the most part, even though bogus and without REALITY basis, they are keeping in recent rants within those instruction. However, they still post misinformation and somewhat anti-Semitic toned statements – so along with already filed grievances and investigations [soon to be scheduled Court dates and lawsuit filings], the most recent found Facebook comments will be reviewed. Sorry but they should have never begun their [as one L.A. adviser calls it] “reign of terror” against myself, my husband, REAL family, friends and colleagues a few years ago. Stay tuned – and read the papers, buy my book and in the mean while remember to ALWAYS read my blog post. Who knows, maybe you will get an invitation to one of my grand fetes or book signing party near you – I REALLY love a good time gathering of the best people!!!
