Two more things about SOM (as we lovingly referred to The Sound of Music around here) that I neglected to mention in my last post.
Have you been looking for an effective diet plan? Look no further! Simply land a role in a production whose theater seats almost 1700 people, get a scratchy throat, and commence the no-eating-out-of abject-fear-diet! It worked quite well for several days, as I ate barely anything! Results will vary. Turns out over here the results lasted only until after the show. Sigh.
And also, I have to share this funny, provided by my 7 year old son. My family sat in the second row of the mezzanine when they came to SOM. My husband had bought me a large bouquet of roses (see previous post, re: rock star). During the show, my son asked him, quite seriously, "Dad, are you gonna throw the roses on the stage to mom?"
