1. We are about to march out to start our contest (or first game, or first festival) and suddenly I realize we haven't even STARTED to learn the show! No idea how to even march out onto the field, no idea how to line up, etc...
2. Trying to get a rehearsal started (or a concert contest, or we are in the warm up room) and the kids WILL NOT SHUT UP! WILL NOT EVEN PAY ATTENTION TO ME despite my waving my arms, tapping my baton, eventually yelling at the top of my lungs.
(Note - I am NOT a screamer/yeller...and my bands are generally pretty docile and well-behaved)
I'm about 3 or 4 years away from retiring. You mean these WON'T go away?!?!
