There is not much that is more of a bummer than having to go in to work for a double header matinee day on a Saturday. This is a great show and all, and I love my job, but it is still a bummer being inside all day on a Saturday. We have a name for double header days: “Two Do Shays” since by the end of the second show you can’t even speak right.
So I figured that today I would spice up life a little bit by bringing in my mini-marshmallow shooter and waiting in the dark for the crew to arrive. Of course I had to go out and buy a bag of rainbow marshmallows, but it was totally worth it. I think that every now and then you have to do something to break the mundane rut that we all fall in while working a show. Needless to say, I managed to get everyone pretty riled up and happy, which is what I set out to do. Even one of our actors joined in the antics.
So, make sure that whatever you are doing, you keep it fun and interesting! If you are not having fun then you are doing something wrong.
