All Shook Up: I Like Men

Bless my dear choreographer's heart.

We were working on a scene where a woman, who believes my character to be a man (with poetry in his soul - how sweet), tries to seduce "him."  Of course, as community theater goes, the choreography is an innocent tango. 

Our choreographer was trying to help the actress playing the "not-in-the-know" character feel more comfortable with her moves.  She was saying that I was safe because I was a girl and wasn't going to get a stage crush on her or reciprocate her advances.  She trusts me and there is nothing to worry about.   Then she began to stumble over her words with hesitancy, "I can safely say that you don't have to worry about....well...her...ever...umm...well she's not going to be attracted to you...I think..."

In the midst of all of our giggling, I loudly and proudly declared, "I LIKE BOYS!!!"

Of course I said it a few more times for added effect.  'Twas quite funny.  And, for the record, I do like me some brawny, masculine men.  You are safe to tango with me, cast mates:-)
