I’m not funny. What I am is brave.
Maybe, Lucy, maybe, but baby you are damned funny as well. You brightened up many sad moments in my life in which it was difficult to summon a smile, let alone a laugh. But you did it girl, and I thank you.
If Lucy were alive, I would ask if the comedy was part of the plan, or did she just go with her strengths. I saw her in a few earlier films, pre-I Love Lucy and she was talented and glamorous. Gorgeous.
I have listened to Lucille Ball many times in interviews, and she was very smart, very in command of her life and her career. Whatever her original plans for her career, I would bet she did exactly what she wanted, and what was smart, with no regrets–
–and a real eye-opener whether while dancing or while making us laugh
Thank you, Lucy.
