Sitting in the back of a dark theatre with my newest friends, eating chocolate and watching the other girls do their tech run-throughs.

I should have been more daring in dropping my hints that I’d like you to come.

But no… I didn’t invite you to my show tonight just as you didn’t invite me to your show next weekend, and the unspoken conversation in your eyes a few days ago told me you wish I’d invited you as much as I wish you’d invited me.

Well, there’s always the YouTube video after, eh?

And maybe we’ll each get our heads out of our asses before you fly away south for the winter.

In any case, I’ll be thinking of you when I dance tonight. Keep that in mind when you watch that grainy footage on your phone this summer.
