Psyching out for Friday

Hey everyone! I have had a huge week! The week started out normally, going to school on Monday as per the routine, then the very next day I got nastily sick. I’ve had to stay home for three days straight sitting around, coughing, sneezing, and runny nose-ing. Normally, not much would come of this but at the time of writing I just missed the first of two performances of a huge play I am a part of. For the past month I have been rehearsing as part of the stage crew for the production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream and I don’t want to have had all that practice only to be absent on the (second) night of truth; that would be unbearable. Saturday there is a party for all participants in the play and I hope I can make it but I would feel horrible to not actually work on the play and yet go to the party designed as a reward for something I didn’t do – I just wouldn’t be able to do that with a clear conscience.

Fortunately, just in time, my sickness seems to be lifting up and I think I will be able make it to the second performance! Just this evening my mom and I went out to dinner at a place called Besaw’s. It was pretty nice, and I ordered something that just blew my mom’s mind, short ribs and mash potatoes. I have recently been craving meat and today I finally got some! The ribs were HUGE and equally delicious; there were two of them. I just gobbled down all the meat off one and all the potatoes as well as my orange soda. I had a bit of my mom’s chicken and she was happy to share along with a taste of arugula from a salad she wanted me to try, although I have to say it wasn’t my favorite – the dressing left a nasty taste in my mouth. At one point we were having a nice conversation about viruses and in the middle of it I was distracted; I let my mom finish her thought and then I said, ”I just saw a man riding a pink motorcycle.” My mom broke out in laughter. On the way to the restaurant, we also saw an equally ridiculous sight – a motorcycle with a little puppy in the sidecar. When I saw the pink motorcycle, I made a joke about seeing a puppy riding in a sidecar of a pink motorcycle. In honor of our dinner I turned it into a comic for you all to see! At the end of the meal we were both full but that didn’t mean I didn’t have room for dessert! For dessert, we had an adorable little homemade chocolate chip cookie in a tiny iron pan with a handle with homemade salted caramel ice cream on top. The ice cream was vile. My mom loved it but the cookie was delicious. Now, upon writing this, I feel that almost all the sickness has passed and by tomorrow I will be READY for all the stuff happening; when it happens I will be sure to tell you all of the crazy things that occurred!

In all this excitement, my previous post here at Cysays was adapted for the new CCA Blog. I’m the very first inaugural guest blogger ever! I really feel honored about it and I just couldn’t close this post without mentioning how much I appreciate their kindness and that they did that!

Psyching out for tomorrow,

    great drawing – I would have to smile big if I saw that on the road. It was great to see the play last night – what a cool thing to be involved with! Hope you have a good day breaking down the set and hanging out with the troupe!
