Lunch With Shakespeare…. by Joyce Oroz

Recently my friend and I were looking for a place to eat lunch. “In a pickle,” (The Tempest) we were looking for a good fish restaurant in Moss Landing. It was only eleven o’clock in the morning and the town was “as dead as a doornail” (Henry VI) We parked the car and entered a rustic looking building with a shingle that read, SHAKESPEARE SOCIETY OF AMERICA. They do not serve food, by the way. We just wanted to poke our noses inside to see what the place was all about. Forty-five minutes later we left the building, our heads spinning with facts and trivia on William Shakespeare. We saw so many antique books, paintings, statues and stuff relating to William.
The gift shop, however, was completely modern and full of great jewelry and gifts. The sales help to support the society. “There’s a method in their madness.” (Hamlet)
The big question is; why Moss Landing? Some things are simply unexplainable, “neither here nor there.” (Othello)
“In the twinkling of an eye” (The Merchant of Venice) we found The Whole Enchilada just two blocks away, and had “too much of a good thing.” (As You Like It) We were “a sorry sight” (Macbeth) as we waddled back to the car.
