This Never Happens Here

"I met the new neighbor," my uncle told my aunt. "His name is Ben something. His voice sounded familiar, but I couldn't place him."

Later, the wheels turning, he asked, "What's that show you watch every day?"

Thinking a moment, my aunt suggested: "'Law & Order'?"

"Yes!" he said. "He's on that."

Head spinning, she tried to think of a Ben on "Law & Order."

"Do you mean Benjamin Bratt?" she asked, incredulous.

"That's it."

OMG, how come my neighbors are just old ladies with dementia? I love Law and Order beyond reason. I almost swooned seeing Paul Sorvino on the street once and Richard Belzer at the Friar's Club just about killed me! But Ben Bratt aka Reynaldo Curtis? Too, too much.

I think my aunt is suddenly giving retirement serious consideration. Meanwhile, the rest of us are planning visits.

"Ben" and his wife are building a house in Topanga Canyon, so they won't be next door forever.

Mmmmm.... Benjamin Bratt is yummy. That is all.
