it’s 3:00 on a Friday…

In a few hours I will be getting myself and the family ready to cruise up town and attend our monthly First Friday…Music in the Park. In a few hours I will be taking a stance with the microphone in hand blindly speaking to an audience somewhere between 500-1000 people. In a few hours I will be conquering a fear and obtaining a goal.
When I was a child I was petrified by shyness. If I had to buy lunch at school I would end up sick and going home before the bell chimed and lines formed. I sometimes still find it hard to speak with people I know in public spaces and instead look at the floor or pretend to find something ridiculously interesting that all peripheral vision is impaired. Sometimes… And sometimes with my big mouth and loud voice you’d never know that I was shy for a minute.
The irony is that I had a dream when I was younger to be a stand-up comedian and could never figure out how I would ever get myself in front of people without peeing on myself. Unless of course that was the joke of my show.
But here I am hours before doing something I never deemed possible…
I’m not very funny but at least I haven’t peed. Cheers-
