THINGS THAT STILL HAUNT ME

When I'm blue, random, unsettling things will pop into my head. Things I wish I could forget.
  1. My audition for Cincinnati Puppet Theater
    I had to submit an audition tape and I didn't take it seriously enough. I think that I assumed they wouldn't want me, so I sabotaged myself.
  2. Running over a dog in Montana
    I was on the highway, in heavy traffic, near Butte, and this dog came out of nowhere. I had no way to avoid him, and no way to go back and deal with him. I cried the rest of the way to Missoula.
  3. Shoulda said this...
    I replay conversations in my mind and have the best rejoinders. Of course it was 4 months ago and the person would have no idea what I was referring to, but I'll try to file it away in case I get another shot at it.
  4. Playing basketball (local league) despite an injury.
    Years later my knee is shot & I struggle to walk.
