|The ice is melting.|
some of the reasons it's best that we wake up from this Groundhog Day and end this long portion of the tour.
I'm making mistakes I haven't made once in 3 years. After this long doing much of the same in the ice show, it's easy to turn on the auto pilot and let my body do what it's been trained. But sometimes that auto pilot gets high jacked and I literally crash into people who are in the same spot every show. Or while maneuvering my fancy prop, my mind wanders thinking about dinner and morning shows and I drift off pattern and nearly off the ice. Or I simply fall skating forward.
|What time is the show again?|
People are annoying me for being nice. There are plenty of legitimate reasons that people can annoy me (have you followed #100daysofclucking?), but it's time for a break when friendliness is on the list. The niceness itself can't be a bad thing (or can it?), so it must be that the amount of time I want to be left alone has slowly increased after 7 months in this faux Real World. Or some people are nice when it's not necessary. Maybe the bigger question is, what happened to me? I blame vitamin D deficiency. Please still be nice to me.
Having said all this, do not be alarmed or think I hate my job. I'm generally active, somewhat cheerful, love sightseeing, and decent on the ice. But in this unique work and social environment, we all need an occasional break to reenergize and appreciate what we do.
