Musing

If all the world's a stage, what role do you play?

At work, I'm an extra - human scenery. Recently, this has begun to annoy me.

With most friends (Game Night, both Wednesday and Friday), I'm a supporting actor, possibly a featured one. Shows up for a few scenes, may have a memorable line or two, but not integral to the plot.

At home, and with close friends, I"m more of a co-star. Not really the focus of the show, but between us, we carry a good chunk of the action.

What about you? Where do you fall on the Playbill of life?

Hmmm. At home, I'm the director/stage manager/crew.

With close friends, I'm the supporting actress (Tim's the lead)

At work, it's kind an Ensemble cast. Occasional solo here and there.

I'm a leo. I'm in the starring role no matter where I am, at least in my own head! Just kidding... but seriously... :)

Game Night strikes me as kind of an ensemble cast, with no "starring" role, credits listed alphabetically, etc. :) I haven't ever gone but once, but that's just how it struck me. At home, I'm Dame Judy Dench, in the lead and loved everywhere I go (but mostly only because of Rosco). Among friends, I'd say it's an ensemble cast there as well.

At work, I pull the curtain. Pull-a, pull-a, pull-a.

With my friends it's definitely an ensemble. Despite being a Leo, I don't always take the lead; in fact, I'm often happy to sit back and ride the flow.

Work is also an ensemble, but I'm forced into a (self-deprecating) role as a titular leader of a mulidisciplinary team, mostly because my degree took longer to obtain. Definitely not because I've been doing my job longer or have more experience. Some of the nurses have been doing this about as long as I've been alive. And I always make sure to address the charge nurse and unit secretary as "boss" every now and then, just to let them know that I don't think I'm above anyone.
