Title: tulips
Post by: peekschris on July 10, 2018, 06:04:46 AM
She handed me a clear, glass vase.  Thicker at the bottom and with a flared opening at the top. Kind of like an hourglass. It had little decorative nubs on the outside. Inside held an array of white flowers. “It’s for your first show. They’re tulips.” “Oh, thank you so much,” I replied as I smelled them. I have no idea what the difference between a tulip and a toucan is. I don’t know flora or fauna. I’ve smoked for so many years that my sense of smell is non-existent. But the white roses are gorgeous. And the gift is thoughtful. Kim, on the other hand, didn’t seem so thoughtful. She’s about 45, blonde. Very funny and energetic on stage. But has a bad case of resting-bitch-personality. I mean face. She tries to help everyone in the show, but it comes off as bossy and mean. She even pulled me aside and whispered that sometimes when she’s being a bitch it comes off as ‘bitchy’ and not to take it personally. Ok, so maybe that’s not exactly what she said, but I’m going deaf and it’s hard to hear in that hot, dark theater. Man, that place is old.  Falling apart even. Kim means well. I believe. She’s a funny and talented actress. True to her craft. Those white carnations she gave me were a thoughtful gift. Kim could stand to lose some weight though. Maybe that’s why she’s dating online. Community theater is full of strangers and strangeness. If there’s a next time, I’ll be prepared for that. Thanks for the criticism and the sweet-smelling carnations, Kim. I hope you fall in love and die! Please forget to write!
