My random thoughts and adventures as a single mom and physician.

Ah - the theater days.
So a long time ago, I was one of those thespians. I loved acting when I was little. I don't think I was any good - at least not for awhile. Finally in high school, I auditioned for a company called "Skitsos". Yep - that is what we were called. Eventually the name changed (something about offending people) - and we became SOS Players. All of this stood for Skits Outreach Services.
We were a bunch of high school kids who loved to be a tremendously bit dramatic. We performed at other schools all across the midwest. It was a blast. I didn't particularly like high school, so I missed about 30-40 days a year touring. I may have received numerous threats from the principal's office about missing so much school. I said - look at my grades- doesn't really matter does it. So I missed as many days as I possibly could:)
Skitsos Reunion - 2008 (that would be me pregnant with Munchkin)
I got to hang out with some amazing people during those 3 years. Several now are relatively famous (a couple of stand up comedians, tv star, some with smaller bits in movies). But I had amazing directors. And just being a part of the company really taught me a lot about myself. I know I am not the same because of them.
