A memory a day - 25 - Please sir I need a wee!

About 12 or 13 here at secondary school. I was quite a solitary shy young thing so the idea of drama club really excited me. A chance to be somebody else and throw off some inhibitions and maybe even make some friends. Unfortunately I was rubbish at acting, really rubbish. The only line I ever got in a play was "Please sir I need a wee" in Willy Russells "Our Day Out". Oh the humiliation amongst stifled giggles!

The familiar sizzle in my cheeks led to giving up drama shortly after. I think I'd also thought there'd be good parties but alas no, these parties were just the source of more awkwardness. Ah the pains of becoming a teenager.
