Sincerely 'Fro Me to You- A Star is Born

Welcome to this week's Sincerely 'Fro Me to You Carnival. If you want to join in, you can read the guidelines here. A flashback giveaway next week for linky participants!  

I have always loved drama.  As a young girl, I would spend hours crafting plays. 

Starring me.

When I got into high school, I joined the drama team.  It was pretty pathetic.  Mainly because I was an untalented introvert with a love for the stage, not exactly a dynamic combo.

But I continued to try out for school plays.  I landed an understudy role.  (Which commits you to a lot of work, no glory and a sick dream of the true actress getting hurt, so you can take her place.)

I did land the role of a ghost with two lines when I was a sophomore.  The director reminded me at every practice to ‘get into my character.’  I had difficulty with this.

You know, since I was alive.

My junior year, my church drama department took a chance on me for a huge part in their annual play.

I just new this would be my big break.

And although this a part I hope I never play again, it was a true moment of glory.

Because I was born to be a star.

Okay.  Let's hear it!

Janel said...

That. Is. Awesome.

You are a star in my book for sure!

Beautiful Craziness said...

Now you are daring and sincere! Great pic!

Worlds Greatest Mommy said...

Oh my gosh, I snorted Dr. Pepper into my ear canal.

This is awesome. The birth of a star. Your children must get a kick out of this!

franticallysimple said...

It must have been difficult to go wee-wee-wee all the way home in that suit...

P.S. He loves you... said...

There's NO topping this one! I will gracefully "bow out" of this one!

Your too funny!

Crayl said...

Nice Pig outfit! Such a natural star!

Ok, Where Was I? said...

That's funny. And I got all excited b/c I was yelling (in my head) "me too! Me too!" I wanted to be an actor, but I didn't want to have to get up on stage in front of people and say things. So my big role in high school was one of three under some kind of tarp thing as some kind of creature. I wish I could remember what it was supposed to be, but we had no lines and just had to slink across the stage a few times. My heart pounded!

Valarie said...

Oh my goodness that is a precious picture :)

You do make the cutest little pig I ever have seen. May I ask what play required these wonderful acting abilities?

By the way I think I might have you beat on the "fro" thing. :)

marky said...

aww.. man Now there is Tea on my keyboard! I should not drink and read at the same time.. I may sputter my drink when laughter strikes!
Great photo! Great story..your rise to fame!

Mandy said...

Oh my. That's definitely not what I expected. Hilarious!

Debbie in NC said...

I'm glad my coffee cup was empty! ROFL! But you are so adorable!!

You are a star...from someone whose mouth would freeze shut at the mere thought of being on stage!

Jamie - RoseCottage said...

What a costume! I look forward to giggling quite a lot today as I read everybody's entries!

Mycrazylife said...

I am sitting in the Yale New Haven Hospital waiting room and just scrolled down to see that picture of you and burst out laughing so hard, they may actually require a psychiatric eval. before they let me leave!

You are hilarious!

Caution said...

I think it was just a hint of the greatness to come!

Lisa J said...

In all your greatness, I just don't know if I could have posted that picture of myself. Too funny. I guess if we can't laugh at our self what can we laugh at??

Dawn said...

Not the picture I was expecting and I'm so glad I didn't have any coffee in my mouth!

At least you didn't wear that costume for a school play 'cause it most certainly would have made it into the yearbook to be immortalized for all eternity!

Thanks for the laugh!
Dawn

blackbelt_oma said...

That is very flattering - definitely a Fight the Frump candidate ;-) I played Winnie the Pooh's Rabbit when I was 14 but that's almost forgiveable, dont you think? Thankfully I don't have a picture of it. What I want to be actually, is not an actor, but a singer. Mary Chapin Carpenter or Shaniah Twain. :-)

Suzie said...

I played a cow on broadway. When I was mooing my heart out I took a good hard look at my life and gave up acting

Gotta GROW with it said...

Darling sweet piggie! You are brave in so many ways. I love seeing how this carnival fun is growing btw. I could sit all day laughing and reminiscing with all these fabulous bloggers. Great idea.

bunchofbull-ers! said...

LOL....LOVE IT! I had my big break in 2nd grade....I was the Owl in 'Hansel and Gretel'. Are you ready for this...I had to say "Whoo-Whoo". I almost fainted I was so nervous. ;O)

Halfmoon Girl said...

You made a beautiful pig! They do better in Hollywood than one might think- just remember Wilbur, Miss Piggy, etc. Cute story.

Kristen M. said...

What kind of church play was that? Were you acting out when Jesus cast the demons out of a herd of pigs?

Bahama Shores Mama: said...

I smell bacon!

Thanks for letting me play again.

Becoming Me said...

What a star! Loved this post!!

it All Started With a Kiss said...

Love the rosy cheeks!
The fancy choir in the background just don't seem to go with the costume... Must be an interesting church play!

Elaine A. said...

See, you were just waiting for the perfect role. Oh wait, that came out wrong! ; 0

Thanks for the laugh today!

THopgood said...

The question is....which little piggy were you...did you build your house of straw, wood, or brick...inquiring minds want to know!

Blue Castle said...

Oh that is hilarious! You pulled it off, though! I had to be a cow in a Christmas play when I was a child and I was mortified. But, a pig - wow. My hat goes off to you.

Maternal Mirth said...

No one blew your house down, did they?

You are cuter than Miss Piggy :)

TJ said...

The fact that you wore it and have a photo to prove it, is amazing! You have guts!

I'm glad to participate this time, I've really enjoyed reading Jen's entries.

Bina said...

Whoo Hoo! Doesn't matter they part, the costume, or anything else, as long as you were the STAR!!!!!

Lisa said...

You look fabulous! How could you have known that you would use that picture someday when you were a famous blogger?!

Amanda said...

I'll frame mine if you frame yours LOL

Darla said...

Sorry I missed this week! I got so busy with stuff outside I am barely getting a post a day in. LOL! Dang priorities!

Becky said...

I look like that when I wake up every morning! ;)

Less the make up of course!

Happy Thursday!
The Maid

Genny said...
