Journaling: So I’m at this party at the house of a friend from work and I see this really cute guy that I’d never met before. I made sure to strategically place myself in such a way as to finally meet him. We were chatting and getting along really well, I thought. He started to talk about how he sings and him and his brothers had just finished performing in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dream Coat. Well that so happens to be my favorite musical and the one I dream of being in, so of course I tell him this. I’m going on and on about how much I love that show and how I want to perform the part of the narrator some day. I was being quite passionate. Then all of a sudden the conversation went stale and ended rather quickly. I wondered what I had done. Did I say something wrong? Throughout our whole conversation we had never mentioned our names, so I went up to the friend who was throwing the party and asked who this mystery guy was. “Oh, he’s one of the Osmond brothers,” he calmly stated. Osmond?!? As in Donnie and Marie!! As in the entire family is famous for performing in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dream Coat?! No wonder he walked away! He must have thought I was trying to get on the inside. Weasel my way into a part in the show. Trying to kiss up to him and his talent. If only he had known that I had no idea who he really was! If only I hadn’t spoken so passionately about the show. I was so embarrassed about what he was probably thinking about me. He had the completely wrong idea about me. It is totally self-inflicted embarrassment, but I feel it all the same! He thinks I’m a crazy nut, and I was just trying to impress a cute guy.
