48 hours: first group (A)

, | Tweet this

Excitement simmered in the air of the first screening at the Brattle Theatre like Mexican jumping beans in a popcorn popper.

I was elected Lead Usher by the organizational committee in a unanimous vote. I think they were really impressed by my platform speech which outlined my plan for total usher awesomeness [1].

I carried out my lead usher duties with precision--handing out ballots and pencils like a professional. I had a flashlight with me but never used it [2]. I don't think I'll be bringing one tonight. For the second show I just sat around and watched all my usher minions deviously performing their assigned usher duties.

I'm tired now. I think I got home at midnight and then ate some dinner and went to bed.

[1] I was the first usher to arrive--that might have helped as well.
[2] When I was preparing, I was envisioning one of those ushers with the flashlights pointing out free seats.
