The things we do for love

Tomorrow should be my day off.

A day spent blissfully playing computer games, surfing the internet and perhaps even spending some time writing some more of SFU.

Instead I shall be spending tomorrow being subjected to GCSE level drama. My feelings on this have been given in a former post

I have been informed that I am not allowed to post anything about the experience tomorrow, but I figured I should warn you in advance that I may well have slipped into some kind of irreversible coma, meaning that I am unable to write anything coherent.

I did ask my wife to ensure that none of her students spoke to me during the 6 hours of human rights violations that I am going to subjected to. Partially for my own sanity, but more for theirs, I mean much as I like being brutally honest to customers in my job, I feel that perhaps shattering the dreams of a 16 year old Hollywood wannabe is where I should draw the line.

Sadly whilst she did communicate this to them, she took great glee in expressing that much as I didn’t want them to speak with me she was 100% behind them if they wanted a chat. So much so that she laughed for about 10 minutes whilst relating the class conversation with me.

Either way this could be my last post, not only am I being subjected to 6 hours of essentially amateur dramatics, but I’m also going to have spend that time in the company of 11-16 year olds and even worse theatre people.

 It’s entirely possible I could end up leaving in a straight jacket which I’m pretty sure will put a huge strain on my ability to write further posts.

    I remember reading and laughing at the earlier post about buying Dr. Horrible’s book. I’m chuckling anticipating what’s in front of you tomorrow. While I’m disappointed that there will be no reporting on the experience, perhaps the day will provide fuel for the old creative machine. Good luck! 🙂

      Sorry- I should have mentioned that my wife is involved with local theater and has coached young performers in our home as well- including times when I was home with theoretical “free time”. I feel your pain! (Kidding!)
