I bet there are tons of you who read the title and thought it would be about coffee. Boo hoo. Maybe another day.
On Wednesday the Advanced Drama people took a field trip to something called a Folger. Cheryl can’t write about it because she’s going to Ghana and won’t be back until April (which also means That’s What She Said is cancelled for this month as well.) So we did the next best thing and did another interview with Scott!
Question: For those of us who are clueless in these matters, what is the Folger?
Answer:It is a museum of sorts about Shakespheare. It has libraries, exhibits, and a really cool stage that is a replica of the Globe Theatre.
Reaction:I don’t know about you, but just reading that gave me the world’s biggest brainboner.
Q: How did you get there?
A: Charter buses. It was pretty nice.
R: Double brainboner.
Q: What kind of stuff did you perform?
R: Hoboy. Shakespeare’s okay, if thou understandeth what the characters speaketh of. Which doesn’t happen that often.
Q: What’s the most memorable thing you saw there?
A: British people… and the people who performed scenes from Macbeth in fluent French.
R: You know what I said about not understanding Shakespeare? …yeah.
For the record, Scott loves the UK, so I’ll bet he was squealing in ecstasy the entire time.
Q: If you could go back and do the Folger again, would you? What would you do differently?
A: Talk to the British and French people. I am socially awkward… and I hate it.
R: Meanwhile, Cheryl is now “engaged” to a French guy named Nicolas and will have a girl named Colette. And people like Scott will be curled up into a fetal position and sobbing quietly to themselves.
