I was back at work on Wednesday... lots of fun returning after a long break to a 2-show day. Actually, I used the matinee to see if I was well enough for the long haul; if I wasn't, I could then take that evening off and take more time to get better. But, it turned out I was well enough for the first show, with enough stored energy for the second. I was fine. Bearings lost for a bit, but otherwise all right. It was good to be back.
There must be something in that theater... our Eponine, Mandy Bruno, was out for 2 shows, and our Grantaire, Drew Sarich, out for a few as well.
I pride myself on not getting sick a lot, but since I started my run I've been out sick for 7 shows all in all. I don't like missing work (particularly since it's work that I love), so knowing that I'm coming down with something is a pain in the booty.
Well, here's hoping that the weather remains more consistent, and that no one else catches a cold. Summer is fast approaching, so perhaps it'll signal the end of sick days.
