Do You Know Why I'm Calling?

UntitledMy phone was buried in my coat pocket for much of Saturday afternoon and evening. The coat was hung in a communications dead spot in the apartment. When I finally retrieved it I had two notifications waiting regarding performing. It turned out I'd missed my chance for a recurrence of my role as Tooth Fairy to give hope to a child who had lost a tooth on Friday and woken Saturday to no reward. Everything worked out without me but dang, I like being her!

The voice mail, which I almost didn't listen to because I am letting myself get phone-phobic, was from Shari, one of the women putting together the New York City version* of Listen To Your Mother. We texted back and forth a bit and she told me to give her a call.

"Hi Shari, it's Kizz."

"Hi there! So, you know why I'm calling..."

"Well, I hope so."


Participants were asked to keep this information off social media until the formal announcement was made which is why I didn't immediately broadcast the news. This morning, though, Holly, Amy, Varda, and Shari posted their cast list and I'm on it!

The show will be on May 12th, Mother's Day, at 5pm (tickets are $25 pre-sale, $30 on the day). I'm sure I'll be reminding you of that plenty between now and then. A huge thank you to everyone who helped me write something this year, it wound up being a lot harder than last year for reasons I don't yet understand but am working on. This enormous sense of relief and accomplishment is due in part to you!

OK, tell me something that happened to you this weekend?

*Our Misti is one of the folks organizing the Oklahoma City version.


  1. what awesome news!!! Nothing that spectacular happened to me this weekend, but I did get to spend time with family I don't often see and that was great :-)

  2. congratulations!

  3. Hey! Congratulations!

  4. Congratulations! That's awesome news.

  5. congratulations! I'm going to believe that my post on the day of your audition actually was a good luck charm for you! LOL
    I read yesterday for Sacramento. It was such a fun experience. Regardless of the outcome I am grateful for the adventure that it was.

  6. So exciting! Can't wait to share the stage with you! (And you know, all the others!)
