Tomorrow Thomas starts his first paid job in theatre. It isn’t exactly playing Hamlet on Broadway, but it’s a real job with a cool theatre company that pays small amounts of real money, so we’re pretty excited. He’s doing an internship with the Chester Theatre Company, where he’ll be assistant stage manager (aka Chief Flunky) for their production of An Iliad. The show sounds super cool (as does the season), and I’m much of the sadz that I won’t be able to see it. You New England types should definitely go see it and report back!
The following text exchange between Sue and I was kicked off by my dropping Thomas off at the MSP airport for his flight back to Massachusetts:
Me: Tom’s heading off through security looking all grown up and scruffy! Love you!
How exactly did we get to be parents of an increasingly adult-like creature?
(Don’t answer that. Really. Don’t.)
