I auditioned for Peg in The Way of The World by William Congreve at The Shakespeare Theatre today. Lesley Larsen was also invited to audition for the same part, so we rode the metro into the city together and had a wonderful time strutting our stuff for Michael Kahn. She's doing the show in Floyd with Spencer and I next week, so we crammed in a rehearsal this afternoon before we all had to go our separate ways. Spencer came over and saw that I had killed the plant he bought for me. I felt a little bit of shame at that. But I warned him! I told him I would kill a plant if he bought me one. And I did.
He's too busy for me now. And I'm too busy pretending to not miss him when he's around to be enjoyable. He acts like spending any time with me is a complete waste. And i know he has lots of other things to do. He's in rehearsal 12 hours a day--but it still hurts. We used to actually enjoy each other's company. I hate feeling like a drag. It's not in my best interest to be around people who make me feel like that.
And so, as the plant dies, so does our friendship. It sucks. But hey--what can you do? He's more concerned that I killed the plant than he is about me. And that sucks more. I'm sure time will pass and I hope that we can be close friends again, but it's hard to feel that it's possible right now.
Oh well. Life goes on.
I auditioned with STC today! And I did great! And I got to hang out with Lesley.
Good things happened today. And now, I need to come up with a title for the show we're doing next week. I haven't got a clue!!
