Day Four! Only two more! How will I choose??!? For Thursday’s treat, you delicious NYFOS supporters you, I give you “A Quiet Thing”. I sang this right after I graduated high school in response to my co-stars’ song “Marry Me” in a Portage Players’ Production of Kander & Ebb’s And The World Goes ‘Round. It turns out I would marry that co-star who asked me in the show (Life imitates art?), and we would have ten beautiful years together and two kinda crappy ones. My apologies that this particular story doesn’t have a rosier ending; but just remember, tomorrow is Friday!
