Getting into Trouble

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

"I tell a lot of young performers, 'Go get in trouble. Go commit yourself to something you're not sure you can do,' " he says. "And I followed my own advice. It was something I desperately wanted to do -- not as a career -- but an invitation I knew I couldn't refuse and yet had no sense of whether or not I could do it. And that is trouble -- but it was all so joyful. I'm very grateful to Mr. Sondheim that he got me in such trouble."

~ Stephen Colbert, regarding his recent role in Company

How would it be in life if everything were just a big surprise?

Oh, wait...it is that way, isn't it? 

Yea, I know you think you know how things will work out.  You turn on the coffee pot and you'll get coffee - unless the coffee pot is broken.  OK, you say "not ALL the time, but most of the time".  I'll bet you think you have a pretty good idea of how most things will probably work out; most of the time (pardon me if I don't use your lottery numbers...).
