Standout

#228: When was the last time you really stood out in a crowd? Are you comfortable in that position, or do you wish you could fade into the woodwork?

Yesterday.

Whilst AnimalMan, Nick Spellman, was getting reading for his last show of the day in our NG KiDS tent at LolliBop festival, he put on Frozen’s famous track, Let It Go, and asked the kids to sing along. Unbeknownst to me, I was gleefully (unconsciously) singing along, too. No problem right? Wrong. I was standing on my lonesome in front of our banner/stand to the right of the stage for all the kids to see. That’s when I noticed a boy turn to his mum, point in my direction and say “she knows all the words”. Argh! That when I saw all of the tiny eyes on me… Although, instead of glowing bright red or turning to run and hide, I simply gestured that they sing louder and really get involved. I think that deflected some of the attention, as I’m really not a centre stage thriving individual in the slightest.
