I'm a nearly 45 yr old female. The last time I was on a stage in front of people was in the 6th grade for our 'production' of "The Wizard Of Oz". I was Auntie Em. No one else wanted to be Em, but...'there are no small parts'....and what's the Wiz of Oz without, "Auntie Em!! I'm frightened! right?
I have never been the center of attention, nor have I ever sought that spotlight. But I do like to make people laugh, if I can.

Unfortunately, I'm only 2 of those.
