Do you know what I find interesting? The tricks your mind plays on you when you only see certain things, or a glimpse of something. For example while on the subway, and you only see something on a person from the corner of your eye and you assume one thing about the person standing next to you and then you later look and realize that’s totally not who you thought was there!

I saw a guy next to me who was wearing a Mets shirt and I could see in my short glimpse out of the corner of my eye that he had a belly, so I thought a middle-aged man was standing next to me who was a Mets baseball fan. I could completely picture who this middle-aged man was, or at least my mind filled in the blanks based off those few facts I had caught a glimpse of.

But then I looked around later to get out the way of the opening subway doors and I had to double take! This middle-aged Mets fan was in fact a teenager/young scrawny guy with nerdy glasses on and the Mets shirt he was wearing was huge on him so it looked like he had a belly I guess in the corner of my eye when it billowed out as the train moved.

It was weird as it was a totally different guy to who I thought I was riding next to for almost all of my journey! It threw me because it had been a comfortable fact that I knew who was next to me and then realizing my expectations were wrong took me a moment to take in.

This happens a lot to me – since I am constantly tired and that doesn’t help – and not just with people but everything, especially mis-reading things around me.

Like yesterday I was walking down the street and of course in my usual rush, this time pulling a suitcase full of props and late to rehearsal, or trying to not be late I should say, and I had not only to double take but also to stop as I got caught off guard. I thought the awning to the building ahead read:

“The Menopause”

when it actually read:

“The Millenium”

HAHA!! Not even close!!

Perhaps I need more sleep as that was two events yesterday so hmmmm….

And I found out I have to be the prompter for the show I am working on so I really need to be able to focus on the script to read out their lines when prompted!!! I can’t screw that up!
