I am an Actor in a Shitty Play

Yesterday I was asked if I had any acting experience…

I replied, “Well, of course, I do! I pretend I like people 8 hours a day, for 40 hours a week for the last 20 years of my life.”

If that isn’t a hell of a resume’ I don’t know what is. Hopefully, I can trade in my current part in this shitty play for a new leading role where I can surround myself with people who are not content with settling and accepting bullshit. A place where I don’t have to be fake. A place where pretending doesn’t feel like a part of me is dying off everyday.

A place where I don’t have to be positive all the time for fucks-sake!
