Your "Where's the duct tape" moments?

by Wench on August 4, 2012   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

It's not how it sounds. In high school, I played The Artful Dodger in a production of Oliver. Dodger is a thirteen-year-old boy. I was a fourteen-year-old girl. The night they filmed, I couldn't find the tape to, ahem, flatten myself. My sister ran out into the audience before the show started and asked my parents where the duct tape was, which I will never live down (lucky me, my jerkhead boyfriend at the time overheard and found this hilarious). Never did find it. The show must go on! To be honest, I don't think it made a difference... =P
