I thought of that title yesterday, when I was trying to come up with something for my Non Sequitur Thursday post. Yes, I was wishing it was Friday. Who wasn’t? Oh, I know, you probably weren’t (both the people who work on Saturday and the ones who just always have to disagree) (you know who you are).
Oh, how good it feels to be writing my blog post in my battered spiral notebook before my shift at work begins. This is so much better than sitting at the computer, staring at a blank screen and thinking, “I got nuthin’.”
So, yes, it is opening night of Leading Ladies at Ilion Little Theatre. Yesterday, as I gave a little director’s speech before Final Dress (we directors love to give speeches) (and any director who just said, “I don’t,” FAT LIAR!), I said, “There’s a saying that the worse the dress rehearsal the better the opening night…”
“Let’s not do that,” said one of my actors, which is exactly where I was going with that.
“Thank you!” I said.
And we didn’t do that. Rehearsal went very well. I expect tonight’s performance to go equally well. My only two concerns are (1) what am I going to wear and (2) will anybody want to go out for a drink afterward? These are questions for which I am sure answers will be forthcoming.
In the meantime, it is Friday. For this blog specifically, Lame Post Friday. A lame post should also be brief. Happy Friday, everyone.
