The Drive Home

Well I didn't get what I wanted. I was cast as a bird girl. Which, don't get me wrong, is a great job. BUT they decided to cast 12 bird girls! So its just another way of saying you are part of the chorus. Anyway, no big loss, its better not to do it. I was a bit dissapointed, but since I had such a drive a head of me I thought I could shake it off during that hour ride. I did. And luckily there were many things that were entertaining to keep my mind occupied. First of all the Oscar Meyer Weiner Mobile passed me!( its hard not to notice that giant hot dog cruisin' down the road). Secondly, there was an airplane that had a Jazz banner behind it flying around by the freeway. I have only seen this done in California before, so it was fun to see the Jazz banner flying proudly in the air before the big game tonight. Then, someones trailer came off of their hitch and the deisel next to me slammed on the breaks and then started skidding twards other cars! It was the first time I had witnessed an "almost" accident or any kind of accident. Kinda scary, kinda cool. Lastly, there were probably over 30 people paragliding at the point of the mountain. Then one of them started doing these "flip"-like things and it looked like he was going to die! But then I realised it was just controlled chaos. Wheew. All in all, pretty exciting drive home compared to the usual one. And anything is better than thinking about what could have been with Seussical.

Aw, I'm sorry to hear about this, but at least an eventful car ride was able to lift your spirits. It's scary to witness an "almost accident"! And if I were you, I probably would have politely declined the inflated role too. In fact, I have done that before, when I was lamely cast as "The Drunk" in the high school production of Guys & Dolls. It was kind of an insult, since the leads were cast even before the auditions started, and they were NO good! (For the most part.)
