As you probably know, Simeon von Pumpernickel decided to break into showbiz by mailing himself to my sister, who was on a film set at the time.
This did not work according to plan.
However, since my sister recently finished what she'd been doing, she generously offered Simeon a chance to accompany her back to New York City. I'm sure Simeon was excitedly imagining the stuff of champagne wishes and caviar dreams, or at least a first-class seat to JFK or LaGuardia.
He was slightly disappointed to have to fly coach.
However, he is a resilient fellow and has bounced back admirably.
I just hope he doesn't get it into his head to try breaking onto Broadway by mailing himself to the Nederlander or anything.
