5/31/15 WEWRIWA

What a week! Hubs who is usually strong and healthy turned sick and I became caregiver for a change.

Son in Denmark gave me an easy recipe for getting rid of little weeds in our lovely walkway so muscular me worked on that, one more bit to do. And computer died. Rather the battery did requiring a new -a whole new apparatus I need a map to find my important stuff like my docs. HELP! If you live in my area, Rockland County, NY the place to go is Computuners in Nanuet, the best most adept and kind , fast too  who will tweak and help you find your way 9-9 all week.

And now dear, WEWRIWA, here’s a snippet to clear up the mystery in this part of my 5 Star story Spreading her Wings. When last seen, the major money man dragged his triple threat daughter in to the audition held at the Shubert Theater. On Broadway. This scene takes place during a break right after Misty Welles has auditioned a key scene with Sandor knocking the director’s socks off.

Excerpt in ten:

Misty stretched out her long legs to search for the sandwich Sandor made for her and said, “Hi, I’m Misty Welles, if you didn’t have lunch, I’ll share with you.”
The thin girl in a worn leotard looked surprised that anyone talked to her and replied, “Uh, no I didn’t think to bring a sandwich.”
“No prob, I share and I might even have two because I think Sandor packed an extra one.”
“You’re Clarabelle, right?”
“Uh huh, stupid name but my father loves it.”
Misty thought for a minute and then in a burst of goodwill and kindness she spoke quietly,
“if you don’t mind, I’d think about Claire, it’s nicer for show business.”
The girl looked up from her drawing pad, eyes wide with surprise and said,“that’s the nicest thing anyone ever said to me, Claire. pretty name.“

She leaned close to Misty, “I don’t care about show business but father dragged me here and he’s forcing the producer to make me the star.”
Shocked, Misty almost slid off her chair, “I went to college to specialize in singing, dance and acting just like all of us auditioning and that’s years of training and a huge expense to our parents and you don’t care?”
“All I want to do is be a costume designer, there’s so much to learn and I did it when he was out of town or late at work because I love creating costumes.”

  1. Hi Ed. There are reasons for all of this but I may stop today. not sure. I do hope you’re enjoying a story that resembles real life. So many of the excerpts are about fantasy, sci fi, time travel and my imagination goes just so far to what goes on in today’s world.

  2. Wow, I hadn’t prepared myself to like Clarabelle (oh yes, Claire sounds MUCH better), I thought she’d be some spoiled brat, but you made her quite likeable. I really feel for her.

  3. This snippet reveals a lot about Misty. I agree that folks in show biz don’t seem to appreciate all the years of training she has gone through. Great snippet, and sorry for all the rough stuff you went through this past week.

  4. I’m so glad Clarabelle/Claire isn’t as terrible as her father! She’s a great twist–I expected her to be a total diva (I watched “Singin’ in the Rain” last week and figured her for a Lina Lamont type 🙂 ).

    You always know how to defy expectations, Charmaine!

  5. I agree with everyone else- it’s a great twist to make Clarabelle a sympathetic character with her own dreams and challenges. The name Clarabelle makes me think of an animated cow. Hope she adopts Claire or Clara or Belle soon!

  6. Oh she has another dream and it’s not what her father wants. Seems like she’s found a friend though. Can’t wait for more.

  7. Sorry to hear your week was so vexatious! I hope your husband is feeling better very soon. As to the snippet, I totally didn’t see the twist coming with Claire being so lovely and sympathetic! Now I can’t wait for more. Best wishes!

  8. YES!!!! I so wanted there to be something awesome about Clarabelle, and to see her and Misty chatting like dear friends already just makes me squee. And what a smart girls: Claire/Clarabelle knowing what she wants, Misty for not letting jealousy keep her from making a potential friend.

    Thank you for this, Charmaine. You didn’t play the obvious cards.

  9. Hey, Clarabelle is not a stupid name. I think it’s kind of cool, but I can feel her pain. LOL Hope the husband is feeling better and I just sprayed my front and back lawn for weeds, they were popping up all over. 😦

  10. Hi GF in Chicago who works her butt off on a daily basis, thanks for your comment. Weeds do pop, mine are small and ruin the beauty of our unique walkway. I have one small portion to finish. Hubs is off to see the doctor later. As for me, I need a facial and a conference with our fearless leader. Love, C
