"What would you do if you had guts?"
I would try out for more musicals. I would let my musical theatre soul free to rock, and never look back.
I was watching Glee (for the FIRST TIME EVER. Whoa, the Spanish/glee club teacher is fiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiinnnnnnnnnnnneeee) last night and it made me cry.
NOT A NORMAL REACTION TO TELEVISION.
Watching the rival school perform "Rehab" hit me hard, it was brilliant and amazing and a billion things that I don't have the words to describe right. What it simply did was kick me in the face and make me realize how much I really miss it all.
I miss the whole sterotypical bit: the lights/the sounds/the makeup/the COSTUMES. That stuff is a given. Most of all, I JUST miss doing extraordinary things, the things I don't get to do every single day, unless its a theme party or my birthday (note to self... start planning this immediately).
I miss hiking my skirt up and high-kicking. I miss fake swimming on the floor whilst wearing a bonnet. I miss spray painting my hair and body to look Puerto Rican. I miss kissing then slapping then kissing a pirate. I miss tap dancing and ripping off layers of clothes to reveal show-girl tights and feathered caps. I miss rehearsing, YES REHEARSING- early in the AM and late into the PM, all to perfect 3 minutes of glitter and sound. I miss being dramatic and loud and corny. Those Glee people BE MY PEOPLE AND I MISS IT ALL.
This is going to happen. Mark my words.
Now answer the question posed... what would YOU do if you had the guts?
