Every year the drama club put on a 3 act play. Many people came to see it. A new English teacher chose a play that was daring for its day. The cute cheerleader and the star basketball player would exchange a real kiss, instead of a hug. I wanted the part and had practiced the parts to be read. After the try outs for the cheerleader part, I met with the English teacher. She said I had been chosen to be a haughty aunt. I looked very disappointed. She said, “Any- one can do a kiss. Your part takes real acting.” It didn’t make me feel any better. I turned away the night of the kiss. I did have more kisses as I got older from a real boyfriend.
