the jar

years ago my daughter gave me a jar filled with questions


so
while i can still reasonably remember

1. What kind of extracurricular activities were you involved in at school?


it's true
i was Mame
my senior year i tried out for this musical
17 costume changes
lots of dancing and singing


many lines learned thanks to Nate
a trumpet and long long staircase
live orchestra in the pit
it was a blast


i was Ruth in Blithe Spirit
produced as theater in the round
the seance scene was funny
my brother Nathan drilled me on my lines
do you see a pattern here?


drill team
when they were ziggin'
i was zaggin'

wish i had a sorry picture of homecoming
we made the formation of an "O"
for Olympus high school
jump splits at the climax
i was a count too late
only one standing
to the song
"Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head"

i'll never forget
