Wow! What a day! Who said you can’t teach an old dog new tricks?
I, at the ripe old age of not 29 anymore, ventured out of my comfort zone and took an acting class. Yep. On camera and everything. While filming our intro dialogues today the instructor asked us some questions to get us loosened up a little bit, silly things mostly. What’s your name, where are you from, what’s your major, etc. For the younger folks he asked what their best birthday was. Most reflected on their most recent (21, 22), I guess a major milestone for the young folk. For the small handful of us older folks, he asked, “what was the best of your life?”.
Ummm, ahhh, hmmm, Bueller, Bueller.
I don’t know!
AGHHH, the pressure!
Do you know how many days I’ve actually experienced?
Oh, boy, what am I going to say? I hate being put on the spot like that. I couldn’t come up with anything. Best day? Today maybe, I am blessed to have woken up. Not everyone gets to say that. I went with the ole parental stand-by…day my kids were born. OR-IG-I-NAL. I turned it into a funny moment and we all laughed a little, a few of the other parents laughed, got my humor. It was fun. I’m funny. I survived.
Survived, but not satisfied. I left the class relieved I didn’t die and also a little irritated. I know there were times that great things happened and I told myself, “I will remember this as the best day of my life”. Obviously, I don’t remember jack. On my drive home I wracked my brain trying to think of what the best day of my life has been so far.
So I thought I would put it down here in the blog and let you ponder and share…
What has been the best day of YOUR life?
Can’t wait to read what you come up with!
