The acting teacher told us that every day we should say to ourselves, "I am an actor." Saying equals believing. Or being. But I didn't buy it.

I couldn't say those words aloud without wanting to kick myself in the teeth. I couldn't say them even when I was alone. Even though I made them the banner greeting on my cell phone, I cringed when I opened the phone to make a call.

Still, I think my 30-odd "actor" classmates actually bought this shit. I wanted to tell them they should practice saying "I am an office temp" instead.
