This is definitely going to be the hardest posting I have made… it is just so difficult to put into words what a great friend Chris is. What he and Lisa thought would be a real downer on my birthday was the greatest present he could give me. I have always known that you don’t always “get the part”, but to have him tell me what he did just floored me. I really was touched and wanted to break down not because I was disappointed but because of everything he did when he told me. He asked me if I was upset by not being cast in the show and if I was he would step down. He also mentioned that he asked the director to consider double casting the part. That would be very difficult as she is a first time director. My Lord what have I done to deserve such an awesome friend. I was not even tempted to take him up on his offer. It sounds cliche but I really do mean that if I did not get the role, there is no one else I would rather watch in it. Plus, I was asked to be the stage manager so I will be a huge part of the show as well. Just still hoping for that time we get to share the stage in a show as actors only. Thank you my friend… You have made my 35th birthday one I will never forget.
