It was a big weekend
If you haven’t already seen it on Facebook, this weekend Relay taught me three things:
- I can sometimes have more will than brains
- People who push through foot trauma in movies and stories might be able to swing the heroics while the adrenalin’s flowing, but if the bad guy made them sit still for a half hour, they wouldn’t be able to continue the fight.
- I was never sure what the end of The Long Walk meant, but I’m here to tell you know that if King knew an iota of what he spoke, then Garrity’s sprint at the end was an Ambrose Bierce-worthy death, because there is nothing on Earth that can make me believe someone who has been walking a 4 MPH pace for days will run under any circumstances.
All that aside, this is how it was for me at the end:

Saturday was pretty tame. I took Lauren to her swim class and my blessed wife let me gimp along as I needed all day. Sunday was soccer with the boy, some work outside, and The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe from Netflix in the evening.
Now I am recording some fun stuff…
One is a callback for an audition I did for an upcoming audio drama called In the Line of Duty. It looks really cool and I’d like to tell you more, but I don’t want to reveal anything until I get the go-ahead from the directors.
The other is a rework for Fixing a Whole which is a challenging piece because I play a character plus his ego, id and super ego. I can’t wait to see how the director builds all this so it doesn’t all sound like me just talking to myself. This project will most likely release this summer, and I’ll pass on the info when it does.
Then I’m going to bed. Because I need it. I hope you had a lovely weekend too!
