Every Girl's Dream

At some point, most little girls dream of becoming an actress.  Not this girl!  The thought of performing in front of people has always made me queasy, but today I had to suck it up and deal.  Up until now, all the auditions have been through emailed recordings, but today we had a few local ladies come in to Genesis to read for the main parts.  Since I was the only other female in the room, I was “volunteered” to read the other parts, which just happened to be for women.  While I found it interesting to watch the live auditions, being in them was a different story.  I don’t know how actors do it – it felt like the camera was burning a hole in me. And kudos to the auditioning ladies who did such a great job acting opposite me as I completely stunk up the joint.
