Sweating Lime Cool-Aide

With temperatures over 100 degrees F, and 50 % humidity, working in an enclosed amphitheatre can feel like your
being baked like a clam on an eastern shore. . .

Gotta love the giant sweat droplets falling off my face through out the show.

(It doesn't help that I wearing a giant black potato sack that's 4 layers thick and weighs the same as my 8 year old niece! Take a heavy black wig and paint your face in 3 inches of green spackle and then belt your face off. Now, you can imagine why in my head I hear a little voice shouting,
"Just walk off stage. . . your gonna die!"
Good thing I'm stubborn.)

You can't tell from this photo, but when I pat the sweat off my face in the 15 or so seconds
between The Wizard and I and the scene before Popular,
you would think the Cool-Aide Man had some and sprayed me with a super soaker of his Lemon-Lime Blast!

Either that, or I've been drinking way too much Mountain Dew!

As quoting from The Wizard of Oz, "I'm Melting, I'm Melting!" Quite literally.

(PS- I haven't had Mountain Dew in ages! It sounds so refreshing right now! Oishii!)

I love all the back stage info! I'm dying just cleaning at home today and it's definitely not 100 degrees. I feel for ya! You still make a green face with sweat look awesome! Ha ha
