Hearing:: "More Blood/Kill the Bat Boy"- Bat Boy [UK Cast]
I just had a stunning realization.
As most of you who know me in real life are aware of, I have a lisp. It's not really a crazy severe lisp, but most of the time, my S's in words are replaced by the TH sound. And... that's what happens when you have a lisp. Obviously. I've been trying to get rid of it for years, but my damned tongue just won't rest behind my bottom teeth like it should.
Anyway, today I realized something horrifying. I can't make the TH sound, either. I mean, I can in the beginning of words, but in the end of words, it just vanished. Death becomes dea, cloth becomes clo, etc. Oh my god. How did I never notice that before? So, after learning this stunning information, I attempted to say TH words with S's at the end and OH GOD. IT'S AWFUL. It's actually really funny, but it's also REALLY FRUSTRATING, because now I have another speech problem to work on. And that sucks.
In other news, Bat Boy is going really well. It kind of shocking to think that two weeks have gone by already-- it's already 1/3 over. Wow. That really scary. But I love it SO MUCH. It's actually a lot more fun this year. Even though I had a lead role last year. But, I guess it just goes to show me that, honestly, it really doesn't matter what part you get. It's the people, and the show that I really care about. I do adore my role, though. I mean, even though I'm only in one scene, that is probably the most KICKASS SCENE in the show. Well, to me. I love my song, too. It's just... god, I love being in Willow's camp shows. <3
So, I guess my speech impediment isn't that horrifying. But still, sometimes you just feel like your speaking skills are deteriorating.
