Not too long ago, I featured a great quote from Phyllis Diller here on the blog (“a smile is a curve that sets everything straight”).
I loved the thought, and when I saw to whom it was attributed, it brought to mind great memories of her act – she was a larger than life personna, especially weird and wonderful when, as a kid, I was fascinated by her appearance and that unforgettable laugh.
Today’s news includes the headline that she died in her sleep last night.
Reading her obituary, I saw so many of her wonderful one-liners…like this:
“I don’t like to cook; I can make a TV dinner taste like radio.”
She was one-of-a-kind.
