Hey look at me! I'm blogging even though I said I wouldn't!
It's like I totally low-balled you? And you were all set up for disappointment? And now I'm surprising you!
It's how I do. This way even when I do the smallest things that I should be doing anyway? You think it's great.
So, Lurrrver17 and I went on an audition last night...for a little WillyShakes play called "Othello". You may have heard of it.
And it was with a company that neither of us have worked with, but a good gal pal (we shall call her Hooliet) of ours had. So she was supposed to be there with us...but had to cancel. So we were two little lost lambs.
So we get there, and the two of us like immediately go into panic mode. Like OMG WE DON'T KNOW ANYONE AND PEOPLE ARE STARING AND OMG LETS HIDE IN MY CAR OMG OMG OMG WE'RE THE WORST ACTORS EVER AND WE SUCK AT LIFE.
But, we go in...thanking the stars for each other.
So we go in, and you guys? Literally? EVERY SINGLE PERSON there is CLEARLY in High School. I mean, MAYBE there was one very hairy dude that could've been in his early 20s. So I immediately text Hooliet like "WTF. I am SO OLD." And she's all "No worries, they're auditioning for Romeo and Juliet as well and all those young kids are there for that."
Worry? Not alleviated.
So Lurrrver17 and I are all filling out our audition forms, and like I literally go over it twice, leaving the "What is Your Age?" portion blank. There's a portion on the form that's like "If Your Under 18 give us the email of your guardian/parent/whatever" and Lurrrver17 is all,
Lurrrver17: Who should I put?
Me:::SIGH::: No, you can't put me. Except for that "Do you Drive Yourself Question" you should probably put ME. Dude, you're going to be 18 next week. Just put that you're 18.
Lurrrver17: But I'm not.
Me: Just put "WILL BE 18 ON MAY 16th!"
Lurrrver17::::huffs::: Fine mom.
Then we hear laughing. Apparently this little interaction has been watched and noted by the table full of Susie16s that we are filling the forms out at.
Me: Ugh. So embarrassing.
Lurrrver17: Well. It was a pretty good introduction to us.
So then we are both staring at my empty line next to the "What is Your Age?" question. Like, I cannot bring myself to write in my ACTUAL age and hand it to Susie16 who's managing the auditions.
I was GOING to but 22, but I could feel Lurrrver17's cold, hard glare on me....so I put 24.
Again. The LurrrverStare.
So I added a little "+" mark to it.
I am now? Aged 24+.
Which I find totally appropriate.
