Pinning and needling

Pinning and needling

Pins and Needles Day doesn’t have anything to do with the horrible tingly feeling you get in your foot when someone knocks at the door, causing you to fall over as soon as you stand up and swiftly faceplant the floor. But then nor does it have anything to do – at least not literally – with actual pins and needles. Instead it celebrates the play¬†of that name, which opened on Broadway in 1937 but took 73 years to make its way across the pond and onto a British stage in 2010.

I’ve never seen it, but I believe the opening line is: Ah, there’s the door. I’d best stand up and answer it. Ooh! Ooh! My leg! Whooaa-ooaaaa-ooaaaahhhh! *faceplant*
