FML - The follow-up

Today, I performed in a rendition of Jesus Christ Superstar at my school. When it came time for my big solo, a whopping two lines, I forgot the words, making for an awkward eight seconds of silence. FML

Hi, OP here! We had two flawless performances before this one, and several rehearsals before that. So no, I was not unprepared in the least. I think the problem came from the lack of sleep I had before this specific performance, because; with my luck, I happened to catch a cold the night before. Thanks for the positive comments, I feel like posting this has helped me overcome the embarrassment by giving me the opportunity to laugh at my own plight! :)

It's ok OP. In high school we did 12 Angry Men (for us it was 12 angry jurors since there were both men and women). We had an intermission and when it was over we had to go back to the positions we were in but I had a brain fat and couldn't remember where to go so I just stood there awkwardly until everyone else got In position and I remembered where we left off. The audience just looked at me very confused haha. Same as you, I laugh at it when I remember.

I'm guessing by the "wtf" that you've never heard of it, but it's a quite well known musical. It's also been around a long time - my primary school performed it about 20 years ago (and now I feel old).
