So Scriptease won.
And then we went for beer. And I went home, washed the smoke smell out of my jeans, packed, got 3 hours of sleep and headed out to meet the Exit 16 kids at the Southwest ticket counter.
They had an amazing workshop with Susan Messing and saw the two Second City shows. Tim Mason, who is one of the kindest people I know, invited me to play the improv set after the etc show.
Which I can't say was the culmination of a lifelong dream, because it never occured to me that I'd have the chance to do it.
It felt great.
More on the trip later, from a full-sized keyboard.
