The play is over.
This has been a long road for me.
Lots of laughing and lots of crying in my car on the way home from rehearsals.
I am grateful I had the opportunity to be in "Hairspray" and so grateful for the friends I made like:
Who came early to help her dance challenged counterpart and never complained
Who always told me I was doing good and laughed at my jokes
Who helped with the most stressful part of my night...the mic
Who made me laugh every night right before the curtain came up
Who was saddled with a "newbie" and was ever patient
For laughing with me during you can't stop the beat
For Sports Illustrated Swimsuit magazine
For laughing so hard he cried when I told him my husband and I were having sex for my birthday
For being so kind to me
For giving me my one final terrifying moment on the bench
For putting my entire family under a love spell...they LOVE you
For being the captain of this post
For buying Lady Marmalade
For just smiling and taking all of our teasing
For remembering that dancing was hard for me and telling me I was doing a great job. Hooper in the house.
For showing me that me when I grow up I will be bitchin
For telling me I am like Pam...wait....actually I hated that
For "cut a bitch"
For being a great mom who could have been in the council
For stealing the show every night
For giving me the chance
For being a patient teacher
AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST
For really being my shoulder to cry on. For being there through thick and thin and showing me the true meaning of teamwork. Ahhhh the laughs we had. Like remember that one time in the green room when we were all talking and stuff and you said that one funny thing? Priceless. I will miss you most of all.
I will miss you all.
Thank you for all you did.
