Äntligen är skoldagen slut. Jag ska hem och sova nu! Här får ni en liten present; texten jag presenterade för mina kursare förut. Uppgiften var typ att beskriva en “experience” på under 100 ord. Jag misslyckades, lol. Anyway:
Even though I was terribly heartbroken at the time, I went on a date, and we saw this play-anthology-thing; a lot of short plays. One was called Identification. An actor talked about the last party he attended with his ex. They had broken up that day, but in the evening there was a party and they would go to it, and they would pretend that everything was normal.
He’s at the party. He’s extremely sad. Everyone starts singing karaoke. He gets a microphone and is pushed towards the TV-screen. Music fills the theatre, and the song is Macy Gray’s I try. The actor is standing there holding the mic but he is quiet as the lyrics roll by. No voice is heard but I can feel the whole audience singing along. We are singing for him – I try to say good-bye and I choke – without making a sound. The song ends, and so does the play.
