Text Coach: (to stage manager) Well, I know I'm going to need more time with Lacy ... *
I thought a lot today about how you have two options when someone points out how much you have to learn. You can:
1. quit. And not have to deal with people pointing out your shortcomings in very embarrassing and painful ways
2. grit your teeth and listen to it, then try not to beat yourself up too much, then take the advice and get better.
*in all fairness, I do have a pretty sizable monologue, and any monologue demands a text coach's attention. But it wasn't nice to be heard as singled out for after-school tutoring. Dammit. Why can't I know everything, now.
