“Can you fit through that hole?” That is the question that was asked of me on Saturday morning. The hole is 10 inch across and as wide as you can stretch the ropes and cables, and the answer I gave was something along the lines of, “do I have a choice?” Despite being the honorary captain of team fat kid I did fit through a 10 inch hole. But why would I ever need to slip through a cable well and work underneath the grid?
Because I am in Tech. If you ever have done any form of theatre you have experienced the whirlwind that is “Tech”. Well, the higher up the proverbial food chain you get the longer and more brutal the process becomes. I am currently in a month long pre-broadway Tech. Someone has invested more money than I can fathom into making this show happen, and the higher the budget the more stressed everyone becomes and the more small details lead to doing colossally dumb things like going through a cable well in the grid.
I am struggling to make a connection to normal life on this one, but I know that sometimes in life you have situations that can’t be fixed through any means that you would normally even consider. Hell sometimes the solution is so out there that you don’t even think of it when you “think outside the box”.
Take my road trip for example, if you have been following along (or got bored enough to read the archives) you know that the trip has been constantly evolving. Originally it was a 4 month long marathon trip. Then this Tech came up and the opportunity to upgrade my living situation in July came along. So now my very planned out route has turned into a free for all with a scavenger hunt component that I am hoping I can cram into a month… I mean talk about trying to “fit through a hole”. Haha
At any rate, life is good at the moment and I am less than a month away from hoping in the jeep and seeing how long I can avoid being an adult. Although I have to admit I am not sure that what I do for a living allows me to qualify as an adult… I mean do adults get asked if they can fit through holes 70 feet in the air? Cause I do.
