Conversations from back in the day

While attending Missouri State I worked for a little while at a sandwich shop downtown.  One of my co-workers was a Christian theater performance major.  We had numerous conversations about god and religion, usually with her taking the conservative approach.

One day in the course of chatting while making sandwiches I asked her if she had any superstitious practices when auditioning, as many performers tend to do.  She told me that she did.  I asked her what hers was and she said…

“I don’t wear underwear.”

Not the response I anticipated.  “Why?” I asked.

“Because I find it helps me to know that I know something they don’t.”

So I tried it once.  Sure enough, it works.
