I'd been acting in the same play for what felt like aeons and it had begun to wear on me. Each line felt like a chore and I had said so to a friend of mine over coffee.

I'd pondered this suggestion as I dragged myself into my costume. The most wondeful idea hit me and acted my part better than I ever had before, buzzing with the anticipation of my final display.
And as I stood there, presenting myself to the audience, naked as the day I was born, I knew no role would ever bore me again.
