there are no small parts

I had four lines.
Granted, I wasn't the most talented person there...not by a long shot. In fact, I was quite certain that the play I helped write was the worst one there, but I certainly didn't expect that.
I know it isn't about that, that I shouldn't care and that I should appreciate the experience...blah blah blah blah.
But I was a bit downtrodden about not being picked by anyone as a star. I was a little sad that no one wanted to work with me, really. I was super disappointed that my worst fears are true...*sigh*.
So I had four lines.
Now I have a better perspective in dishing out leads to my students.
Spent the weekend playing all manners of purchased card games with the amazingly hospitable fiestada. For real, girlfriend can hook up a sister. Most of our over-Phase 10 cigarette smoking and cheap wine drinking and watching the rally on C-SPAN conversation went something like this:
"Dude, we're SO going to England."
"Oh, I know."
"No, seriously, I hear you."
"We're spending time in ENGLAND with katslater this summer! I am so fucking excited!"
"We're going to England."
I can't wait.
