It’s when you’re tired that the boundaries that divide the different “parts” of life from one another tend to get a little blurry.
This was evident yesterday when I was working through the online First Aid refresher course that I have to complete before attending the in-person training and re-qualifying on Tuesday.
When I got to the section dealing with ‘Shock, Wounds and Bleeding’, the introductory notes featured an image of a wound that was bleeding freely. My immediate response was to exclaim, “Must be fresh… must be blood!” And then I started singing, “Feed me, Seymour….feed me all night long.”
This is evidence of:
- Full and complete engagement in my First Aid training… naturally
- Total and complete immersion in the show I’m directing next year
- Extreme tiredness at the end of term 4
- Consequent failure to observe the boundaries that exist between my different “lives”
And in case what I was singing makes no sense to you, here’s a clip of that scene from the film.
