Funny things that happened to me this week:
Twice on the way to work this week, people asked me if I'm a school teacher. What does a school teacher look like? I don't know. I have friends that teach school. I couldn't do it - certainly not on anything lower than high school or college level. Not enough patience with other people's children. (Sorry - it's true. I am bad.) (At least I haven't chosen this very honorable profession for my own.) Anyhow, I realized the common element on those days was a necklace that I was wearing. My mother gave this to me at some point, and I like it. It has critters on it, and it looks like someone (as opposed to a machine) made it. Do school teachers tend to wear necklaces with critters?
The other funny happened today. I was the liturgist at my church service, something I do once every 6 weeks or so. I like leading the liturgy. I'm not afraid to get up in front of a group, I have a big voice, and I read expressively. (At least I'm getting some use from my college voice and diction classes.) People seem to enjoy it when I'm the liturgist. I get a lot of positive comments. And today I got an odd one. "You should get an agent!" a nice lady called to me as I was leaving the church. "What?" "You could get voice work. You have a great voice. You should get an agent!" I laughed and thanked her kindly. I'd love to get voice over work, but I don't have the time - or really the talent - to pursue this. It was a nice complement though...
I do have part of what it takes for voice over work - I have a face for radio! See, here's my self portrait. I made this here.
