At least we're not Gallagher

So, not on the list of Things It Never Occurred To Me I Might Do, because it did, but certainly in the Trying To Avoid category: "Spatter a critic with blood." *facepalm*

This was a pack, mind you, that has not gone even remotely in that direction before. Fortunately, the critic in question was Mary Shen Barnidge, who is known to everyone in the Chicago stage combat community as an aficionado of all forms of pretend violence, and she was more than cool with it.

As was the friend of the playwright sitting next to her, who informed me at the bar afterward that he also caught some droplets. :: hides under desk ::

Luckily, it's so far proven to come out of clothing extremely well. Y'know, along with my contact lenses.

Skin, OTOH... Well, let's just say the post-show Lady Mac quoteage isn't going to be stopping any time soon. %-}

I keep forgetting to warn anyone coming in a car to leave plenty of time to find parking, because right next to the Loyola campus is not exactly my favorite place in the world to do so. Not impossible by any means, but can be a bit of a PITA.

Now adding to that a recommendation not to wear anything dry-clean-only...

So instead of the Sledge-O-Matic, it's the Slash-O-Matic?

Hee. I wish I could see you do this, but instead I'm hoping you'll post pictures soon. ;)

We did the archival photo call early in tech week, sans sang. Just too much of a hassle. I don't know if there will be other pictures, but I'm certainly planning to get some backstage ones of the aftermath. :-)

>"...and she was more than cool with it."

Thank goodness. :-) Always hit the fan. ;-)

(This made me think of the one professional baseball game I've attended, in which they kept hitting balls my direction, and I kept ducking and mentally begging them to stop, while all the fans kept running to purposely intercept the speeding projectile capable of killing them if it hit at just the wrong angle.)

I have to admit that aspect of it wouldn't be foremost in my mind either. :-) But I've also never been in the line of fire at the couple games I've been to. Though I have been hit with a couple of similar speeding projectiles, albeit not at the speeds one gets from major-league batters.

Then again, I "play" with swords and let people aim kicks next to my head, with the understanding that no rules or training are foolproof...
