Saved by many things


Last week I went to the gym for my usual morning workout. I clipped on my iPod and hopped on a treadmill. I started running and flipped to CNN. As I was flipping, I got minorly sucked into an episode of Saved by the Bell. When there was a commercial, I clicked back to the news. Meanwhile, I was navigating through the musical soundtracks and rap mash-ups that fuel my runs. Then, I remembered my one-act rehearsal was coming up in a few days, so I placed the script in front of me and worked on memorizing my monologues. I was actually surprised when I wasn’t successful. To be fair, it is sort of humbling to admit you can’t follow a 30 minute segment with Zach Morris and his gang. But honestly, I wondered, why am I behaving like a lunatic?
