Since far too often we only publicly say nice things about people when they are dead I’ve decided to randomly pick a Facebook friend every day and say something nice about them.

Today’s person is: Aldo Billingslea!
I can’t remember the first time I saw Aldo Billingslea, but I know I was jealous. Nobody should be that tall, dark, handsome, and talented. He stalked the stage in search of the answers to all our problems, and it was riveting. I was never going to be that guy, and I knew I had to keep Velina from seeing him as long as possible. (Luckily, with a deft combination of dazzling one-liners and piteous weeping, I’ve managed to keep her distracted from comparing me and Mr. Just Visiting From Olympus.)
But after years of seeing him onstage I finally had the chance to work with him. What a nice guy. Whip smart, considerate, self-effacing... it’s like he doesn’t know he’s walking among mere mortals.
