Oddly enough, daydreams do come true. Kind of. I've been striving to live my life not out of fear or worry about what other people think. So when certain opportunities come up that are scary, I've decided to embrace them, rather than laughing them off as cheesy.
That is why I auditioned to sing at a Valentine's dinner fundraiser some people from my work are organizing to benefit a local non-profit. And guess who gets to sing the part of Liesl, "I am 16, going on 17"? That's right, me. And guess who is singing the male lead? That's right, the cutest boy in school. No wait, some married guy in facilities. That's where the daydream breaks down and gets a bit weird.
And he does happen to be about a decade younger than me, so hopefully no one in the audience laughs when I sing, "I am 16!" and look moon-eyed at my adolescent co-worker. Or maybe it would be better if they did laugh.
In any case, it's all for charity, right?
