The Stages of Fright

Avi Bar-Zeev

--

Barely moving a muscle, I break into a heavy sweat. My mouth runs dry and I forget for a moment to even breathe. I don’t actually need to use the bathroom anymore (I’d been nervous all morning), but my body promises terrible things will happen if I don’t go right now. But then I’ll be late to the stage and utterly embarrassed. Every organ screams, “Run now!”
