These days, I use my hard-earned BFA to develop Crystal Reports and write SQL code. I'm quick to point out, though, that stage management bears so much in common with today's Project Management, that my degree really is paying off. Sort of.
This morning Kate is watching Mary Poppins. Again. She's taken to dancing and singing all the songs (it's painfully cute). Now she'll enter a room and say "Hello, Mary! Spit spot!". While we were eating our breakfast and watching Kate dance around in front of the television, demanding that we "step in time, step in time!" I said "I sure hope she doesn't decide to be a theatre major." Jeremiah said "If she does, she better hone up on her programming skills." I briefly considered letting Jeremiah see some of my face-punching skills...but I had to admit he had me there.
