What happens when your husband is hanging around listening while you're recording a part for a comedic play.

reminds me of an old Limerick my cousin used to say when I was younger:

A fly and a flea in a flue
were imprisoned so what could they do
Said the fly "let us flee"
"Let us fly" said the flea
so they flew through a flaw in the flue

I don't know who wrote it, or when, but I know my cousin was saying it to me in the early 1970s

This is what happens when your cat is ready for you to stop recording....but is happy about interrupting.

You know you're in the zone when you get halfway through the disclaimer and forget what you're supposed to be saying! I didn't even get the author's name right either :roll:
And from later in the same recording - what do you suppose drees might be?

This is what happens when you're trying to record in a house where cats and dogs live together but do not get along:

also weird coincidence cuz my line was "what's that?" and then you hear them fighting in the background :lol:

Too few in number and too proud to hide
Then say to the others who did not follow through
