Ever watch Ugly Betty?
You know the goofy, gay assistant, Mark?
WELL, I went to high school with him! Since I started watching the show, I kept thinking he seemed so familiar. I recognized him from somewhere. I assumed it was just another TV show. Uh, nope! He was in theater with me! I was a Techie and he was an actor. I fixed his spats in Joseph and The Amazing Technicolor Dream Coat! We joked around in class, and during rehearsal. And my recollection is that one time when he did his monologue in theater class, he got in trouble for being too dramatic! I guess it finally paid off for him!! Haha!
I don’t know why I didn’t put two and two together, but yup, I knew him! I guess that’s what 10 years does. That and the fact that a flaming gay Fashionista’s assistant on TV is about a million miles away from high school in Plano, Texas!
What a small world it is!
