I came across the No Shame Web site the other day while telling my fiancee about my time as an embarrassingly amateur actor at the University of Iowa and I was astounded to see one of my few Friday night forays made the schedule. Amazingly, you have my "Poodles with Mohawks" poem listed for Friday, November 16, 1990. I wrote that poem on a dare from some of my partners in crime in the West Side Players and it was one of few pieces I performed (the only other one I that I did as a solo act was called "The Wheels on the Bus Go Flat" and I cannot for the life of me remember when I performed it...sometime during the 1991-1992 academic year).
At any rate, I'm glad to see that someone else out there remembered at least one of my performances. Although I no longer act (unless you consider pretending to be a business professional a form of theatre), I still have a warm spot in my heart for performing and I hope my kids have inherited that proclivity as well.
Thanks for the memories,
UI Grad, 1994
