What an exciting job!!!

As I'm browsing craigslist.com I came across this posting. Oh, how exciting it would be!!!!

High School Color Guard Coach

Yes. That is the job title. Oh how I loved being in Color Guard in high school. How I loved the Friday night games. Performing. Being apart of a larger picture, literally. Oh. The smell of football fields. Stinky football players. Hot cocoa brewing. The excitement of a ton of girls all gathered in a large room doing hair, make up, and dressing. The aroma of hair spray that filled your lungs just moments before filling those same lungs with fresh cool brisk air.

Oh. I loved the bus rides to away games. How songs suddenly erupted. Many chatter and laughter throughout the entire trip, no matter how short or long it may have been. The bonds that you had with the other girls. The trust. The fun. The same shared love.

And the description is this...

"Seeking an instructor for a high school color guard. MUST have at least 60 hours of college credit by June 1, 2009. MUST be available from 2:30-5:00 p.m. three days per week from August 1, 2009 to November 1, 2009. MUST be available 2:30-5:00 p.m. ONE day per week from March 23, 2009-May 23, 2009. MUST be available for Friday night games September-October. MUST be available for Saturday competition trips September-October. MINIMUM experience: 2 years performing on a color guard (high school and/or college), experience with flags AND rifles and/or sabres. PREFERRED experience: 2 years on a college color guard, and/or teaching a high school and/or college color guard, experience with flags, rifles, sabres, AND dance."

Oh, and if they have a Winterguard too! That is a totally new and amazing experience that is very similiar in some aspects yet a completely different experience in so many others!

Oh how fun and exciting and challenging this job would be! Dare I apply? Nope. Why? Well, me choreograph? (If I can even spell it!) Instead, I'll just dream about it... If it was an assistant position, heck yeah! But to write material and all? Not me.
