Oh Gentle Reader,

Last night we had dance rehearsal for my big dance number “Don’t Break The Rules.” OH. MY. STARS!

Since A Chorus Line ended, I have been really lax on getting some cardio done. I love to run, like I LOOOOOOOOVE to run.  On an elliptical.  I should specify.  With all the crazy things I have done over the years in these shows, my knees don’t like the impact that jogging or using a treadmill cause. Any way, I love to spend at least an hour running when I stop at the gym and for the last three and a half weeks, I haven’t stepped on one.

One of the things that we are playing with for Hanratty is that he is not particularly fit. Having just come off a dance heavy show, I couldn’t imagine what it would be like to not be able to get down with the boogie.  That’s what the kids say, right?

Well, Dear Reader, I found out last night what it could be like.  Oh! Boy, did my gym vacation come back and bite me.  Bit me gooooood!! We made it through all 20 pages of the song and not only did I stumble on some sections of the dance, but I couldn’t spit out the words fast enough! Oh man, it was kind of a mess, I am ashamed to admit. LOL! But it was fun and I think we all had a good time.

All in all, it is gonna be a friggin’ great number.  I can’t wait for the Charleston at the end! I was given the chance to just park and bark (that’s the “official” term when one stands and sings) but HELL to the NAH! I am going full out dance and vocals on this number cuz that’s what it calls for!

So, Kind Reader, y’all know what this calls for right? I’ll get back to ya, I gotta go for a run… 😀 But first, have YOU ever accomplished something purely on accident?  Has laziness ever given you an opportunity to see something that you wouldn’t have done otherwise? Let me know in the comments!

Until next time, Gentle Reader! Gotta go catch my breath. Hahahahahahahaha…
