Detecting the wear and tear work has done on body and mind, loved ones have recently approached me with concern, asking me just how much I work at the Lusty Lady. Since it was suggested I write out my duties for my own reflection, I have decided to share it with you:
20+ = the number of hours onstage or in PP
3 = for writing and reciting the hotline schedule at 3:00 am for a week at least once a month
10+ = for being a Junior Madam: making the schedule, checking in with dancers, and office work
7+ = if I happen to have the on-call phone
3 = for assistant PR: working on the website, collaborating for fliers, events, and corralling the co-op
1-2= for being on the "Jukebox" committee which entails dealing with the music to be played as we dance
Barring any Board of Directors, co-op, or dancer meetings this adds to about 45 hours a week. It is no wonder I have creaky knees and twitching eyelid.
