Western Days Parade, 05-12-03

On Thursday 12th, I walked in the West Allis Western Days Parade as part of the West Allis Players, promoting our upcoming show, "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum." Our Romanesque outfits were of course wildly incongruous in the otherwise cowboy-themed parade, but of course we wanted to be noticed. Wearing a tunic, draped-sheet toga, and crown of vine leaves, I was variously identified by spectators as "Ceasar" or "Zeus," but I was surprisingly touched by the little boy who addressed me as "Hello, Jesus!" I'm glad I had the presence of mind to smile and return his greeting.
