When everyone walks out of the theater smiling and humming (and some of us were even dancing a little), you know youíve seen a good show. I had heard that ďThe Full MontyĒ was a lot of fun to see on stage, but I didnít know Iíd enjoy it so much.
Part of it is the talented company of Summer Repertory Theatre players, who always put forth a professional effort. And part of it is the show itself. Iím always grateful to see a musical comedy with songs that make me want to sing along (and a few that make me laugh).
Titillated? No, I was not titillated. But I was highly amused by those in the audience who were titillated. They might have had an even better time than I did, and thatís saying something.
Iím glad I went, but I have to say that I was in no mood for fun most of the day. It was one of those days when I have to do two daysí work, and then in the middle of it I got a phone call from Tim that was like a maze I couldnít find my way out of.
So I went off on him. You would have been proud of me. I let him know exactly why I didnít have time to give him the cost reports he wanted right now. I listed everything Iíve done for the last three weeks and everything I still have to do this week. I made it sound even worse than it really is, if thatís even possible.
Of course, I immediately backed off. There are two things I donít want him to think. I donít want him to think I canít get the job done. And I really donít want him to think I have so much work that I need ďhelp.Ē So I backed off a little, but not all the way. I think he got the message. He ended up apologizing to me for asking me to do my job.
