As many of you who dutifully follow my musings are well aware, I am a big fan of Playboy. It’s been my dream for some time now to get an invite to the mansion.

Well, friends, it looks like my time may indeed have arrived. I just found out that Hef is giving away golden tickets into ten copies of Playboy this month — and the finders of the tickets will get to go to the Midsummer Night’s Dream party!

So let me explain to you why this was meant to be, for me. Not only have I written extensively about my love for the magazine, when I was in first grade, I was in “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.” The play. I was Peaseblossom, the fairy. I had lines and everything. You might think that’s no big deal — plenty of first grade classes do variations on Shakespeare. But it launched a lifelong love of fairies, Shakespeare and tutus…

I’ve said too much. All you need to know is that I will be buying up all the copies of Playboy in my neighborhood and yours. Bring it on.
