Still no location

For the audition, that is. Perhaps he thinks he's going to audition me via email.

Got the monologue down almost. Just the usual phrasing mix-ups to muddle my head around.

Speaking of phrasing, here's the other thing I just can't help memorising this week...

It was drowsily warm
with dozens of bees
lazily buzzing through flowers and trees.
Hairy Maclary decided to choose
a space in the shade for his afternoon snooze.
He dozily dreamed
as he lay on his back
when

Pittery pattery
Skittery skattery
ZIP round the corner
came Zachary Quack
who wanted to frolic and footle and play
but
Hairy Maclary skedaddled away.

Over the lawn and asparagus bed
Went Hairy Maclary to hide in the shed.
He lurked in the shadows all dusty and black
but

Pittery Pattery
Skittery Skattery
Zip round the corner came Zachary Quack....
(from Hairy Maclary and Zachary Quack by Lynley Dodd) (one of this week's library books)

I could keep going, but that should be enough to bore you!
