Risky Business

I've been engaging in risky behavior lately.

Don't get too excited.

For the last 20 weeks, I've been leaving my comfort zone and taking improv classes at Bobby Oliver's Standup Academy. How much riskier does it get?

How about getting up on a stage and performing at The Ice House in front of family, friends and strangers?

I'm glad I took the risk.

But I'm even gladder it's over.


I'll miss spending Saturday afternoons with this zany group.

Looks like so much fun!

What? No detailed description of some of the best skits, some of the best impromptu lines you delivered? Nothing to indicate the joy and fulfillment you got from this experience?

Oh, wait. I think your face says it all!

Have you heard from David Letterman yet?

WV: Pretrop. It's when I'm de trop before I even arrive.

Looks like it was risky and rewarding. Congratulations.

Ronni, Now that I've "recovered," I can say that it was a lot of fun.

Sue, A sketch that I wrote, performed by two actors, went over really well. It was called The Food Snob and the Food Slob, about two homeless men begging for food outside an upscale restaurant. The snob rejects all the handouts because they don't meet his high standards.

AH, Ha - Still waiting to hear back from Dave.

Jean, Yes, it did end up being a rewarding experience.

Susan! Hello there. I'm very proud of you for venturing out of your comfort zone, that's never easy. I'm so happy that you enjoyed the experience, just sad I had to miss it. Way to go you "risky" woman you! xo~
