It's curtains for me

It’s curtains for me
my little entry in the double dip contest. Its for the "performance" side, if you cant guess by the title ...

Sis, honest to God, I never planned on being a performer, much less the lead in a school musical.

I mean, you know I loved my drama classes, and was part of the drama club, but I always figured I’d be behind the scenes rather than on stage, unless it was as an extra.

I mean, it’s not like I look as handsome as the boy who played the male lead. (Geez, did I really just say that out loud?)

But both my teacher/director Mr. Connor and our best performer Kelly Anderson saw something in me I didn’t.

First it was Mr. Connor who decided I was the best person to be his assistant during the production of the latest musical, “guys and dolls”.

And that job meant I spent a lot of time Kelly, who always got the lead role in any production we put on.

Right up until she broke her ankle two days before we were supposed to open, and she decided I was the perfect person to replace her, despite me being a boy.

I still have no idea how she convinced Mr. Connor, nor how he convinced my parents, but before I knew it it was showtime, and there I was, wearing a dress and preparing to sing and act in front of hundreds of students and their families.

And as you know, sis, it was a big success.

But something happened to me doing this. Dressing as a girl was scary but it also felt ... right, somehow.

And I have no idea what that means.

So that’s why I wanted to talk to you, sis.

What the heck do I do now?
