Okay, Just One More 

… Before I take a break. 

Performance went pretty well tonight.

On the other hand, about half the stage stabbed me in the butt. 

I had to change out of my shorts after “Lean On Me,” because OMG:

Key included for scale.

The corresponding hole in my shorts, happily, doesn’t align with anything that might be considered obscene. 

As D observed, “That’s why you should only dance on marley.”

…Our at least run a Giant Splinter Check with something other than your butt.

Me in a nutshell: Standard uptight ballet boy. Trapeze junkie. Half-baked choreographer. Budding researcher. Transit cyclist. Terrible homemaker. Neuro-atypical. Fabulous. Married to a very patient man. Bachelor of Science in Psychology (2015). Proto-foodie, but lazy about it. Cat owner ... or, should I say, cat own-ee? ... dog lover. Equestrian.

  1. Oh my god – such a stage combined with the usual show tights that are nothing more than a breeze of nothing – ouch.

    • These ones, fortunately, were fairly sturdy (and cheap). I probably would have cried if I’d skewered my Actual Ballet Tights—less because I probably would’ve been stabbed much more effectively than because they’re ridiculously expensive! (Fortunately, the piece other piece, which called for my dove-grey Legit Ballet Tights, didn’t involve floorwork.)

      Come to think of it, it could’ve been much worse. The splinters got me in a clothed body part, when the costume for this piece was little dance shorts and a t-shirt, and a third of the choreography involves rolling and/or sliding on the ground. I’m happy that I didn’t skewer myself in the calf or something like that!
