I just got the nicest phone call.
I graduated high school way back in the 70s, and of course, being the little mini-diva that I was, I was involved in all the musicals and straight plays I could get into back then. My director was a fiery, crazy, loud, wonderful woman named Marla, who demanded the best from us and then some. She was never satisfied; she always pushed us to do more. She was my inspiration, and the reason I fell in love with musical theater.
She called me today.
Talk about a crazy throwback conversation! We talked for 40 minutes about everything — but mostly musical theater. It was great to hear from her.
Boom Boom – remember Marla? Was she still at the high school when you were there? I think she was.
Big thanks to fellow RtB reader Michael for telling Marla I was still alive…that was great!
Fink, off to study
So does that mean you’re gonna call me thirty years from now…just ‘cuz?
Sweety I’ll probably be in the ground 30 years from now! Heck, at the rate I’m going, I may not make it to the end of March!
What are you doin up so early??
Ha…*blinks hard*…uhhh I am up at the buttcrack of dawn this lovely saturday morning to take the ACT.
Wanna hear how much of an IDIOT I am?
I walked out of school yesterday without my graphing calculator…do you realize how POINTLESS it is for me to pay $40 to take that test without one? And of course I realized it at 11pm last night. There’s a curse, I swear. I called every stinkin’ one I could think of to borrow one. But what HS kid takes their precious calculator home over the weekend? Ugh.
So…thank the Lord Almighty for Mary Inmon. I called her at 6:30 this morning to ask her to rescue me, bless her heart. She is my hero.
Welp, see ya lata, babe. *mwah*
Hey that’s cool! Whenever I go back to MI I have a couple of teachers I contact to see how they are doing. Glad to see you are feeling better!
Thanks, Suz! Funny you should post this…I just got done with lunch and was sitting down to write you.
Providence? I think so.
Got it, I will reply sometime this month LOL
