Doing a Fringe show, or really any show, is kind of like having a piece of Dove chocolate — you just want more and more and more. I have to admit, I love doing the shows — I love making people laugh and hearing applause but it’s so hard to do when you work full-time at another job.
Last night I was thinking if I was 40 I might consider pursuing it full time but when you’re almost 57 (9 days and counting) you think about things like medical insurance and retirement funds and what if and I better and don’t be — it’s so frustrating.
Oh well, I’ll worry about that tomorrow at Tara. Yesterday I came home from work early because I had a show at 5:30. Just as I was walking into my building I saw in the distance was the dog walker with Freckles and Oliver (a dog from the building). And Freckles was so excited to see me I thought she was going to go out of her sweet little dog mind. I’ve seen her this excited before but that is when I come home from work — I just assumed it was because she wanted to get out of her kennel but yesterday I realized it’s because she’s happy to see ME. I can’t even begin to tell you how special that makes me feel. Having a dog is such a great thing.
Well the windows are open again and I can breath again and if I can just stay awake for the next 9 or so hours things will be good. I heard Ellen DeGeneres is going to be at the Mary Tyler Moore statue on the Nicollet Mall today at 11:15. I’ll have to give her a call and see if she wants to do lunch. We are very close — I’m one of her 7,249,187 followers on Twitter.
