I’m a big kid! $#%+!

I recently attended the freshman showcase for my daughter’s theater department at college. Most all of the incoming freshmen and transfer students performed a monologue, a song, or dance number. There were several good performances, and a few amazing ones.

Sadly there were a few that appeared to be the performer’s attempt to prove that they were grown-up and not at all a kid fresh out of high school. Clearly the only way to do this is to say $#%+!, frequently and loudly.
