We met twice a week in my apartment, goes Miranda Julys short story The Swim Team, about a woman who teaches old folks to swimwithout a pool. When they arrived, I had three bowls of warm tap water lined up on the floor, and then a fourth bowl in front of those, the coachs bowl. Wanna hear the rest of Julys absurd tale? The delightful actress Parker Posey will gladly tell it to you at tonights Symphony Space program April Foolery, featuring comedic short stories read by actors you love. Other stories on the bill include Jesus Shaves by David Sedaris, as performed by Tim Blake Nelson, and Just a Little One by Dorothy Parker.
