Ti se taie respiratia.

Ora 6:30.

M-am trezit pe o melodie care mai mult m-ar adormi decat m-ar destepta in mod normal. Trebuie sa schimb alarma de la telefon.

E o zi speciala asa ca am deschis ochii ranjind la tavan si am zburat din pat energic cu gandul de a ma pregati pentru marele eveniment de diseara. De 2 saptamani astept ziua asta si ocazia de a ma urca pe scena in fata a 100 de oameni sa le vorbesc.

Cu siguranta ca majoritatea dintre voi stiti ce e o seara de stand-up open mic. Daca nu stiti va spun eu. E un eveniment in care amatorii de stand-up comedy au ocazia de a se sui pe scena in fata publicului, de a-si tine numarul de comedie si de a-si exersa talentele, sau pur si simplu de a se distra. Pentru mine e un lucru deosebit asta deoarece tot timpul cand asist la un numar de stand-up imi imaginez cum ar fi sa fiu eu acolo sus pe scena si sa imi zic numarul printre rasetele greu de oprit si aplauzele galagioase ale publicului. Imi doresc sa practic stand-up comedy.

Momentul pe care il asteptam se apropie iar acum nu mai numar zilele ci orele si minutele.

Trece prima jumatate a zilei. Mai sunt exact 3 ore si 21 de minute.

Ma intalnesc cu un prieten cu care urma sa tin numarul, cu gandul de a lucra la materialul pregatit. Dupa ce ne-am dat seama stupefiati ca desi stiam de ziua asta de 2 saptamani, nici unul din noi nu avea absolut nimic pregatit, luam repede o foaie si un pix si ne apucam sa scriem. Orice banc, orice gluma oricat de buna sau de proasta a fi o notam.

Colegul era emotionat. Se simtea pe el ca devine agitat si ca se temea putin de MARELE EVENIMENT.

Eu eram relaxat si foarte vesel. Abia asteptam momentul si nu aveam absolut nici o grija pe cap.

Dupa ce am creeat o structura a discursului si aveam un plan mai mult decat genial pentru programul nostru, ne-am indreptat spre locul cu pricina.

In local … 300 de oameni. Panica.

Mergem la organizator pentru a ne trece pe lista si tinem pumni sa nu fim primii ce urca pe scena.

Surpriza … urcam primii pe scena. Panica si mai mare.

Acolo s-au inversat rolurile. Colegul cel nervos si agitat cu cateva ore inainte s-a calmat, si-a pus un zambet charismatic pe fata, a luat “pozitia de atac” si imi dadeam usor seama ca e ca pestele in apa acolo pe scena. Eu in schimb am realizat cum se simte un computer atunci cand ii dau restart. Totul in mintea mea se blocase, uitasem totul, incepand cu discursul pregatit, continuand cu ce am mancat la micul-dejun, continuand cu numele meu, cu ce am invatat in facultate, cu ce am invatat in clasa a 10-a, am uitat si tabla inmultirii apoi. Tot ce mai aveam in cap erau cele 300 de perechi de ochi atintite spre mine si asteptand sa-mi deschid gura pentru a zice o gluma. Sau macar un “buna”. Sau un “a”. Orice. Mi s-a taiat respiratia.

Tacere. Tensiune si suspans. Creierul meu inca procesa incercand sa-si revina din restart-ul neasteptat. Reflectoarele se uitau la mine, aparatele foto ma analizau, ochii din sala parca nici nu clipeau, se uitau la mine de parca ar fi fost niste lupi flamanzi gata sa sara si sa ma devoreze. Cel putin asta era in capul meu.

Noroc ca nu eram singur pe scena si noroc cu schimbarea brusca de care a avut parte colegul meu. A inceput el numarul pentru a-mi da timp sa-mi revin.

Intr-un final mi-am revenit. Ne-am tinut numarul, lumea a ras mult, eu am fost multumit de ce-a iesit, colegul la fel, organizatorilor le-a placut de noi. A iesit bine. Au fost 15 minute pe scena ce nu am sa le uit vreodata. Am castigat locul intai … adica niste sedinte la solar (genial).

Ora 23:50.

Intru in camera mea, ma arunc pe canapea si nu mai ranjesc la tavan. Acum ranjeste el la mine.

Lectia: Intotdeauna fii pregatit.

2 saptamani la dispozitie iar eu m-am pregatit cu doar 3 ore inainte.

A vorbi in public nu e usor. Nu e nici greu. E doar diferit de cum mi-am imaginat initial ca ar fi. Prima data e intotdeauna mai greu pentru ca trebuie sa trec peste emotii. A doua oara e mai usor pentru ca nu mai am emotii dar imi dau seama ca nu stiu sa ma fac auzit. A treia oara poate ma fac auzit, dar trebuie sa invat sa mentin atentia publicului. A patra oara imi dau seama ca trebuie sa ma inscriu intr-un club Toastmastes.

Si m-am inscris.

Dupa aproximativ 3 luni de cand ne-am infiintat si functionam, realizez ca eu nu sunt facut sa stau in public. Imi place la nebunie sa atunci cand am cele 300 de perechi de ochi ce ma privesc si asteapta cu nerabdare sa-mi auda discursul, sa ma critice sau sa ma laude. M-am nascut sa fiu pe scena, nu sa incalzesc scaunele din public.

Stiu ca nu sunt primul care s-a blocat prima data si stiu sigur ca n-o sa fiu nici ultimul. Dar tare mi-ar fi placut sa fi participat inainte de seara aceia la cateva sedinte Toastmasters pentru a fi mai pregatit pentru scena.

Alta lectie: Nu te arunca cu capu’ inainte! Nimeni nu s-a nascut invatat.
