i wrote a while ago about returning to the theater business only for the unfinished business. well not sure about that anymore although to be honest having a second job that just for the whatever is a bit fun. besides at the theater i formerly worked for 5 years i was often there and it led to some odd situations that i’ve somewhat discussed even if not at length.
