Last night I went to my daughter's end of season show for the theater camp that she attends. They put on a Broadway review complete with 20 fully costumed and choreographed musical numbers plus one comedy skit. It's nothing short of amazing that they get 140 kids ready for this show in just one month's time.
There was no air conditioning in the auditorium at the Jr High where the show is held. And, being that it is July on Long Island it is almost guaranteed that the shows will to fall on the hottest most humid nights of the year. Last night's show was the closing night's performance, so the house was packed with parents, grandparents, friends and siblings. Needless to say, it was HOT up in that bitch. I felt terrible for the kids that were performing as they had the added burden of hot lights, tons of makeup and layers of costumes.
We sat down and to watch the show and things went really well for the first act. There was a nice middle-aged couple sitting to the right of us who fanned themselves with battery operated portable fans. I was getting some of their air movement, so I was thankful, but something strange happened after intermission.
As soon as the curtain raised on Act 2, this wholesome looking mom-type sitting to my right, became a crazed wooooo girl. I don't know if that's when the Ecstasy kicked in or what, but this woman got possessed. It was like she was trying to break the sound barrier, because I'm pretty sure I heard a sonic boom. Turns out that sound was just my eardrum popping. I swear to you, my right ear is sore. And she didn't just woooooo for speed and volume, she wooooood for distance. She wooooooood until the theater went dark.
So thanks universe, you have managed to once again tangle me up in my underwear. Punishing me for my wicked words is very cute, but I warn you - I have a set of lungs like no other and when I bust out my wooooooo I'm sure to be wrecking shit. So batten down your hatches and put that bitch Mother Nature on notice because I am about to let out a forrest clearing wooooo and you universe, are going to have some cleaning up to do.
