Elaine Stritch rests her bike, reads a note, almost causes a riot.
NEW YORK, June 26—TOLD TO KEEP HER SHIRT ON – Blonde Elaine Stritch, understudy to Ethel Merman in the Broadway hit, “Call Me Madam,” wears halter and shorts which cause her arrest in Central Park. Today she was fined $1 and told by Magistrate Emilio Jones, “A beautiful girl like you could cause a small riot and cause a large crowd to collect by removing your shirt.” “Well,” she replied, “I was there all day and nothing happened.” (AP, 1951)
I’ve been in love a few times in my life. Those few instances have turned out to be unrequited.. eventually… after years. My heart feels so heavy but also empty. I look at other couples and wonder how they made it happen. How did they BOTH fall in love with the person who wants to love them back? I’ve loved but have never been loved. I’d really like to know what that feels like. What’s wrong with me? Why am I so unloveable?
