Captivating and crushingly beautiful. I was concerned that I’d have a hard time with Cumming’s accent, but he spoke slowly enough that I was able to follow. It wasn’t so slow that it was dragging though – perfectly paced. I listened for 5 hours straight and then the last hour when I woke up the next morning.
It was my birthday, and I was on some late-night talk show with my taking pet snake Sandoval.
The crew were excited to meet him and the first guy called him Sandoval then san-DOH-vull like the prison announcer on Johnny Cash’s Folsom album.
I was trying to get Sandoval to show the host how quickly he could strike and used a Tylenol bottle as a target. Sandoval didn’t get what we were trying to do and when we said “Go!” he opened the childproof cap with his fangs.
The host then said that we had nothing left to talk about, and we hung out in silence.
