Things got tense for a few minutes in rehearsal last night. Bob was lecturing us about the benefits of memorizing our music. We're all feeling under pressure with only five more weeks before the concert. Then somebody opened her big mouth demanding to know why Bob hasn't finished the rest of the rehearsal CDs. As if he isn't overworked already. As if he is getting paid to do them. It was a personal grievance and she had no business bringing it up. You should have felt the hostility in the church sanctuary. I couldn't handle it. I wanted to leave.
