The things we will do…For a grade

About 6pm tonight, I will be making a fool of myself…playing actor for a grade.

Now, hopefully he will grade more on the fact that I did not faint…and less on actual acting skills. The people watching will laugh, but not at the play…only at my pain. I never wanted to be an actor, and at the ripe old age of 31, I think the acting bug has passed me by.

Tonight, I will be preforming scene 2.2 of Hamlet, with a few classmates. Shakespeare would cry … or maybe he still will. My professor must find is joy in the torturing of others, or at least their extreme discomfort. Of course, this is my fault, like most of my embarrassing moments are. I could have written a long paper and excused myself from my acting debut. I guess, I took the road most traveled, the lazy one.

I will just have to try not to picture everyone naked, and not eat anything an hour prior.

Anyone else have similar embarrassing college experiences?
