Totally Akward(and true) Tuesday - Secret Pee


While checking out my friends blogs this morning, I came across a story by Megan and had to participate.



As some of you know, I grew up doing musical theatre, and when I was in 8th grade, I auditioned for The Wizard of Oz and was cast. Well, being a kid, I was a munchkin of course and a couple of other things, but mainly a munchkin. The coroner to be exact. Since we were supposed to look kind of silly, our costumes were padded and some people had big bellies, most of us were girls playing boys, so we had wigs and moustaches. Well....opening night was a hoot. During the munchkin scene, when the witch shows up, all of us munchkins would go and hide. The mayor and I hid upstage in the center, facing each other. For whatever reason, Toto went ballistic and was barking uncontrollably at the witch. Toto had rehearsed just fine, but this particular night, he was not happy. The mayor and I got the giggles, but were trying NOT to laugh. I looked at the mayor, which happened to be a girl, and her moustache was falling off. I took her moustache and rolled it up in my scroll. So that made us laugh even harder. We were laughing and laughing and I couldn't take it anymore. I felt the panic come over me and I looked at her and said " I need to pee!". About 5 seconds later, I did, and once it started, the flood gates were open and there was nothing I could do about it. We were still laughing though. Once the scene was over and we got up to continue singing and dancing, I remember worrying that there would be a huge wet spot on the stage, but thank heavens for a big padded costume. The stage was dry. After that, I quietly went to the dressing room, and hung up my costume and didn't say a word.....Thankfully the wardrobe ladies washed our costumes every night. A few days later people started talking and laughing about it, and do you remember the song "One and one, we're having some fun, etc. etc." ? Number 3 ended up being "Three and three, we wonder who peed...." True story.

This is hilarious and I can totally relate! To the laughing, not the peeing ;)

I can't believe you put this out here! I've done all kinds of embarassing and awkward stuff, but no way am I going to admit to it!

One thing I will tell you: I played the lead in Gershwin's "Crazy for You," and on opening night, I mixed up the words to one of my songs. I actually sang, "Blah, blah, blah," until the orchestra just kind of peetered out! Then we moved on, but my God was it humiliating!
