Over Tyne

I was just reading a favorable review of multi-Pulitzer-Prize-winning author, Edward Albee's latest production, “Me, Myself & I,” in the New York Times, and was struck at the mention of Tyne Daly. Here's why.

When I married my husband, I thought I knew almost everything about him. I prided myself on being familiar with his peculiarities, the details of his personality and his body like no other. But then, one night, he told me he hated Tyne Daly. I didn't even know who she was.

"She's the old lady from Judging Amy."

Judging Amy? Why Adam hates the gray haired actress from a show made for middle aged women was beyond me. That he loathes Tim Daly's (of Wings) aged sister is surprising. But I love him for it. I thought, this is what they mean by getting to know each other for the rest of our lives.

  1. Adam's objection (disdain) to this actress can be traced back two generations to his grandfather. Ask him what he thinks of her.
