We all knew this would be Lame Post Friday, and here it is. I had a few thoughts about what I could write about, just some general commentary. None of it seemed good enough in my head to try to put it on paper, and I had to look over my lines anyways.
The lines, by the way, are for Steel Magnolias at Ilion Little Theatre. We play tonight and tomorrow, March 10 and 11, at 8 p.m., and Sunday, March 12 at 2 p.m. Then we have the CAST PAR-TAY!!! Which I may duck out of early, because I did not take Monday off. I thought taking two Mondays off in a row was excessive. Additionally, my husband Steven, who just happens to have the day off, plans to clean the house that day. My job is way easier than cleaning a house as bad as mine!
For any local readers planning to go see the show, I advise you to purchase your tickets online (which you can do by clicking on the Ilion Little Theatre link in the previous paragraph) or get to the theatre early. We are hoping to sell out. Of course, we may not sell out. We did not sell out last weekend, although we had pretty good houses. We had very appreciative houses, I may add. They laughed at the jokes! They clapped at the end! We even got a standing ovation on Sunday! Ooh, I LOVE live theatre!
I am not having the butterflies that plagued me last Friday. My stomach is not entirely quiet, but the flutters are less intense. That is to be expected. As the time draws nearer to my departure, the butterflies increase. They are not the beautiful, colorful creatures we love to watch floating from flower to flower in the summer. Therefore, I will stop calling them butterflies and henceforth refer to them as merely “flutters.” As I come closer to my time to depart, the flutters increase. That’s much better. In a way. Happy Friday, everyone.
