I wanted to say something about the death of Robin Williams, a great actor and comedian whom I have loved for a long time. I’m not sure what I can say about him that hasn’t been said or isn’t known or easy to find out. So I thought I’d share a silly story.
When I was in grade school, I wanted to be Mork from Ork. So much so that when I was in one of the school musicals, before taking a bow at the end of the show, I put my hands behind my ears in imitation of Mork’s sign-off Na-Nu, Na-Nu gesture. I had forgotten this until someone reminded me in High School, but the memory came to me today and I felt like writing it here.
Thanks for all the great times, Mr. Williams! I’ll miss you.
