Please, don’t finger me! The brilliant playwright Neil Simon wrote, among many other comedies, “The Sunshine Boys”. The one-time vaudevillian team “Lewis and Clark”, is asked to revive one of their famous routines, although they’ve actually hated each other for ages. One of the reasons is that one of them kept “fingering” the other one on the chest during their act, till he actually bruised him for good. Now, whenever CFK delivers one of her long TV monologues, I’ve noticed that she’s always “fingering” the audience or the clapping subjects that surround her, with her right hand index. Personally, I find that gesture of hers annoying and irritating. It looks admonitory, threatening, patronizing, as if she were warning us, or scolding us. Body language is often far more eloquent than words. Someone should tell her that.
