A Standing Ovation I applaud you for your masterful performance. For your ability to deceive with a smile plastered upon your face. For your ability to act like you were sincere; when you could have cared-less. Bravo!!

I believed your words for a while; but even the best of the method actors cannot remain in character forever. The spot lights dim and the theater empties. The discrepancy between the script you so masterfully voiced and the actions you had taken – was too great to be believed. I am no longer your audience ; you will have to find another to perform for.
