I ran 8.74 miles today. I ranged somewhere around 9 minute miles. I felt good the whole time. I thought about improv. I thought about how I was going to approach my class tonight. what three things do I want to work on.
- Initiating better group games.
- Initiating better second beats.
- Initiating with bolder characters.
We had improv auditions to be placed on Harold teams yesterday. It was fun! I think I had one really good scene about a knight that entered a new Kingdom and his gifts were the gold coins of elves he slaughtered. (You had to be there.) The guy I was playing with was very good. Very gracious. He was picking up on everything I threw out, and added a lot to the scene. He had one very funny things: he was shocked to hear I had killed so many elves, and said “The elves provide us with vegetables and fruits; they feed the entire kingdom!” I didn’t have a good response. I think I said “I will miss those.” Or, maybe I’m remembering that only now. I should have said something like “A true knight knows how to source locally. We can’t we wasting our money importing food from the forest.” Ho-hum. Always better later. Put that on my grave… “He was better… later.”
What I would give to dance with my son on the beach again: Just dancing in the dark.
