Common English mistake made by people who don't know how to speak common English: saying "literally" when one means "figuratively." Did someone literally lose his lunch at the sight of Laura Miller naked? Then he or she better have misplaced the noontime food he planned to eat immediately upon receiving the unfortunate vision. An upcoming play at Casa Mañana is called The Great Egg Caper
, which, taken literally, would mean a huge version of the tiny pickled flower buds used for seasoning, but made of egg. Sounds delicious to me. Unfortunately, it's really just an Easter play about some stolen eggs. Suitable for all ages, Egg Caper
runs through Sunday at the Casa Mañana Theatre, 3101 W. Lancaster Ave. in Fort Worth. Shows are at 7 p.m. Friday, 10:30 a.m. and 2 p.m. Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday. Tickets are $13 to $15. Visit casamanana.org
