“Cringe Benefits”

I was standing at the back of the room, left arm folded over my right. I’d twitch, and switch position (left hand over my mouth perpendicular to my right arm) every time one of the promo people on stage would forget the script.

And then I’m joined by RJ Ledesma who positions himself beside me, and gives me the look.

“So what are you doing all the way back here?” I asked.

“It’s the guys on stage. I’m getting all tensed up when they forget their lines.”

“Oh you too? That’s good. I thought it was just me! It’s really stressful. It really makes me cringe.”
