Out of Shape
My whole body hurts right now.
Since the Venetian made the cuts to the entertainers, I've had to do double duty. For some of the shows I'm still the magician, but for other shows I'm a living marionette and I have to dance.
Now in my former life I was a dancer (ballet to be exact), so it's not out of the realm of possibility. And actually when I was first hired there, I was hired as both marionette and magician...but that was when I was in my twenties...now my body is older and far more out of shape.
Then to top it all off, the guy who does marionette got injured and will be out for at least a month, so I'm picking up a lot more days....Owwwww!...I'm off today at least.
I know I'm going to spend the morning "relaxing" in a reclining chair...unfortunately, my mouth will be open and a dental hygenist will be poking sharp pointy metal things in my mouth...then back to work tomorrow.
Did I mention Owwwwwwwwwww?
