Yo Mamma

SARA:  Mr. Bowers, those boys are over there telling "Yo Mamma" jokes.
MR. BOWERS:  Thanks, Sara, I'll go check it out.

(Mr. Bowers walks over to the area where the jokesters were seated.)

CHAYNE:  Well, Yo Mamma--Yo Mamma..uhh (Chayne sees me coming.)
MR. BOWERS:  Yo Mamma is soooo AMAZING!  She can create LIFE--JUST LIKE GOD!  Right?  Doesn't God create life?  Didn't your mom create YOU!  And YOUR mom and HIS mom and MY mom!  When you tell jokes about someone's mom, it's like you are telling jokes against GOD.  People who go against God seem to have a tough life...Hey, y'all enjoy your breakfast.

Lion King

We were already in the workings of putting on Lion King before my father passed away.  I knew it would be tough because every time I hear He Lives in You, I tear up and sometimes outright bawl.   At rehearsals the other day, the later happened:

MR BOWERS:  See Nicco, the Raffiki are tricking Simba.  They tell him to that his father is alive!  They tell him to look into the water and he will see his father.  For a second, Simba gets excited--for a second, he thinks...

Only if Necesary

During Kinder Drama a fire alarm sounded:

MR. BOWERS:  That's the fire alarm, line up y'all.
AUSTIN:  Stop, drop and roll!
MICAH:  That's right!

Then, they rolled.
