(heard at the theater during a rehearsal)

“Why’d you put your bottle in the trough?” asks the director.

“Keepin’ it cold,” replies the actor, smugly. I’m in character.

“You mean ‘wet’ — that water is really warm.” No you aren’t.

“Huh?”

“It’s a trough, in the sun, in Oklahoma, in summer.” He walks away.

“Huh.”

It’s hard to be in character when you have no idea where your character is.
