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.
