(Sorry for my blogging hiatus. The Ladagas went to Mindanao sans a yaya and I took care of Raviv the Raging Tornado full time!)
The Comfort Zone: Hormones Stabilize
When the event sponsors have already handed in their sponsorship; the script of the teachers’ presentation was already put together; the film rights, projectors, screen, and other paraphernalia suppliers were already finalized and the ticket sales were rolling, we were all able to sigh a breath of relief. But these few days of semi-petiks mode was short-lived, for just after a few days after…
Signs of Labor
Our event’s “signs of labor” arrived about three days before the event. Eto na. We could feel the event coming, and there were “contractions” (you know, ‘yung biglang may sasakit kasi malapit nang lumabas ang baby. In our case, it’s the sporadic last-minute jitters and last-minute “Ay wala pang music!” and “Naku nasira ‘yung medal!” kinds of problems) from time to time. And because anyone in labor needs midwives, nurses and doctors, we got some help from the members of the UPLB Com Arts Society. Aaand, these people were fantabulous! Mahal ko na sila! Their assistance was pro bono, yet they more than delivered! Ang galing-galing nilang midwives! They arrived to our practices early, they come prepared, they give very useful insights, they were polite…bastatheir joining the team was very helpful!
By the way, I’ll let you in on a secret: Our performance was practiced as a whole only ONCE. Yes, ONCE lang talaga kami nakapag-practice nang kumpleto. We do practice but someone’s always missing. Truly, the teachers’ performance was doomed to fail considering the circumstances.
Part 4 to be continued in a while.
