Very Memorable.

There is really nothing better than being appreciated.


I was having one of those really crummy under appreciated-feeling days at work, but then during will call, toward the end of my shift, this older guy comes up to me and asks, "Did you play that singing bird?"

Since I work at a professional theatre (in the box office), I assumed he was confusing me with an actor he'd seen in a show here in the past. I hastened to shake my head and say "No, I just work in the ticket office. I don't perform."

He furrowed his brow at me and said, "No, I'm sure it was you. What was her name, Gertrude?"

I paused. I did play Gertrude. "At Liberty high school?"

"Yeah! It was you!"

"That was three years ago, sir."

"You were very memorable."


Anyway, it made me all smiley, despite my mildly crummy day. Sometimes I miss acting.
Now I am going to amuse myself for the rest of my shift by reading your SkyMall suggestions. xD

Haha, for the record, I saw the play, and you WERE memorable, as was the whole show. It's still probably the best one I've seen there.

Well you do sing and the British slang for girl is bird so you technically still are a singing bird. :D

I wish someone would remember me as the baby elephant from Jungle Book. But no one could hear me because some IDIOTS didn't give me a microphone to sing my crap line.

You're lucky, Kristina. *sigh*
