I wasn’t nervous at all… until about 5:00 o’clock last night when my GIRLFRIEND called me, just to say… are you nervous??? And, to let me know that she… “heard several people talking about it!”… by 5:05 yesterday evening I was sweating bullets and by 4:59 this morning I still couldn’t sleep.
If you missed my lil ANNOUNCEMENT, I’m a talk-back host for the opening night of LOVE, LOSS AND WHAT I WORE… and it’s tonight! I really haven’t been worked up about it only because I’m not being called on stage until after the show ends. Easy, breezy… right? I figured my role would be like movie credits… the movie comes to an end, lights go on, credits roll and everyone exits the theatre. Sweeeeeet! I can do this! Wrong! Although the talk-backs begin directly after the show “ends”… there was a small segment that I didn’t exactly tune into… “Before you take the stage, there will be a short introduction for you and then your part of the show will begin!” Eeekkkk!
I’m hoping that I don’t faint… or trip, gah. I’ve been blessed with the tripping jean. I pray that I don’t stutter because when I get nervous my words all slur in a-a-a-a-a jittery little way. I hope that I don’t talk too much because sometimes that’s just natural to me. I talk… too much! I hope I can control the word “like” and “umm” and “awesome”. <— That one, “awesome”, is an every other word’er in my smart vocab. But, in the end I hope that I can inspire local female fashionistas and have good conversations! I’m also incredibly thankful to have been given this opportunity. 🙂
What I might wear… ??? Cas but fun! Typically, I wait until… humm… about 10 minutes before to figure out what I’m going to wear. I’m proud of my ‘figuring things out in a timely manner’ kinda tude.
Wish me luck little nuggets! Xo ~ LRT
