Joyce Kurtz soars over Glendale


We've all heard that time flies when you're having fun. Now it can also be said that Joyce Kurtz flies when she's having fun. The popular actress and star of Snow Camel Entertainment's "Joyce" episode discovered that she had the gift of flight while shopping at the Glendale Galleria with her daughter Lily last Saturday afternoon. They were waiting in line for cinnamon pretzels at Auntie Anne's when Joyce found her body floating up into the upper mall stratosphere.

"Everybody thinks you have to flap your arms to fly," Kurtz commented to reporters after the event. "That's so ridiculous! People don't have wings. It's stupid to flap. What I did was kick my feet really fast. Lily said something funny and I laughed and sort of moved my feet. Before I knew it, I was airbound. I used to dance a lot when I was younger so I have super strong legs and feet. I guess the speed of my kicking generated a tremendous air current which in turn provided thrust which lifted me above Auntie Anne's. It's simple physics."

Observers were stunned as Kurtz propelled herself over their heads and into the front of the pretzel line. "I don't think it's fair," complained Addie Smith, a Galleria shopper who was also waiting for a pretzel. "Just because she can fly, that doesn't mean she should get to cut to the front of the line!"

Other shoppers disagreed. Kimberley Ferries, who watched from the Hot Dog On a Stick line was amazed. "It was the most beautiful thing I've ever seen. I'm a big fan of Ms. Kurtz, so just seeing her in person was pretty exciting, but actually seeing her fly through the air, that was something special!"
