I believe that singing is the key to long life, a good figure, a stable temperament, increased intelligence, new friends, super self-confidence, heightened sexual attractiveness and a better sense of humor.

p.s. I went to the opera last night to see my old bananas friend Draculette play "Tosca" in (surprise!) Tosca. And I loved it! I loved it so much. At the end (11:05) I was exhausted but so happy, strolling with SarahB across the plaza on a dark November's eve, and I could actually feel something old and dear and nearly forgotten step back inside my body.
