You always get the side-eye from disapproving aunts who ask how “the biz” is going.
"Well Aunt Jane, I'll have you know that I have been cast as an extra in Starbucks for three and a half indie films and I got called back for tree number four at the county playhouse's production of 'The Wizard of Oz'!"
Watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving parade and shivering for the Rockettes.
"She's kicking her face while barely wearing anything and it's 20 degrees!!! Talent."
Belting along to the showcases of the hottest shows on Broadway.
"IF NOT HOWWWW COULD HE LOVE MEEE!" *Insert impromptu choreography routine here*
Judging the pop-stars that can’t lip sync if their lives depended on it.
"It's your song. HOW DO YOU NOT KNOW THE WORDS WHEN YOU WROTE THE FREAKIN' SONG!" *throws tv remote*
The realization that eating the leftover mashed potatoes will make your leotard highlight your food baby at Saturday’s dance class. (But you’ll totally work it.)
"Momma needs a bigger size Yumiko."
Hiding in the bathroom when your uncle wa
nts to play a game of pick-up football.
"I have an auditon next week and the character description does not call for bruises!"
Knowing that the people at the table with you are your biggest supporters and you wouldn’t want to be sharing a meal with anyone else.
(Besides, you’re going to need a warm bed when that cardboard box outside the Richard Rodgers theater rips ;) )
HAPPY THANKSGIVING LOVES! May we all be blessed and get to perform in that legendary parade with our star-studded casts one day <3
