"I think maybe it exploded in a landfill somewhere and destroyed a nearby small town." LOL - that's hilarious. I also loved Senior Citizen Roulette, and that the mystery of Sherita lives on. Great post!

I actually met the rubber band ball. I don't know how she made him into such a perfect round ball! Go find him!!!!!!

He ( or she ) really was a good looking ball. He had a little stand, too! About an inch high. I think it kept him from rolling off. I don't know how someone could see him, and not absolutely gush about what an interesting thing he was. I would see him, and say, " oh, the rubber band ball! Look how big he's getting." Then I would carefully pick him up, and put him back down. He was a heavy dude! But in a good way. It made me feel she really loved him, and took good care of him. I wish she would try to find him! Or, start a new one. I tried, but couldn't quite get the roundness. It's not as easy as it looks, and I don't get a newspaper. I miss him.

He really was something

I think the whole exercise, including throwing the ball away, was worth it just to produce your comment.

"It’s rude to stop a New Yorker in transit. They may stop to chat out of politeness, but it’s painful for them." So so true.

The moment where both interviewer and interviewee refer to the ball as "he" is an interesting moment!!!

Hmmm! Yes, interesting. If only the ball were still around we could get some clarification.

Maybe we should have a fan meet-up at Sherita's next show.

And we can all come dressed as Sherita. Think how happy that would make them!

It would make them something, for sure.

Woohoo! I made it into the newsletter! Really love Senior Citizen Roulette, but I think we need to hear from seniors in other boroughs.
