So John [lies] just sent me a lovely message which included the following question:
You mention working in the theater. I’m curious, if you’d be willing to share, what sort of work you do.
And I had to reply with a web link, because it’s rare to say: “Well, I’m a dramaturg,” and not…
I’m slightly embarrassed to admit that I would have had to google the term to know what it meant, so I really appreciated the link. The embarrassment is more than offset by despairoftranslators’ kind words about my correspondence, though, and by the satisfaction of knowing I’ve played even a small part in goading her into posting more than she otherwise might have. :-)
