When I woke up this morning I couldn't see Falmouth from my bedroom window....a light mist had settled over the meadow. Sun was streaming in through the window at the back of the house so I knew that in due course it would burn off the mist!
A song came into my head.... "Oh what a beautiful morning. There's a light golden haze on the meadow. ...The sun is as high as an elephants eye...."
Took me right back.....to my first year as a teacher when I was asked to join the local operatic society. They were doing Oklahoma. I was busy.....newly married as well as teaching but I joined...and it was great fun.
Half way through the rehearsals the girl playing Ado Annie got sick. I got her part.....and suddenly got much busier.
She was the ditsy, fun loving girl who was unable to refuse anyone anything...oh dear...
Now her song is still acting out in my head and my life.
"I carn't say no!"
I still don't say no often enough.....so there we are, type casting lasts a life time....and at least I can blame Ado Annie for it as well as God.
