Madison was auditioning for the lead role in the school play. She was a good actor and was doing well on her tryout-until she saw Ms.Amy, the teacher who was directing the play, frowning and waving a hand by her face. Madison
thought she looked as if she couldnt wait for her to finish. When she saw her, she forgot her next line and stammered.
Afterward, Madison knew she had blown it. Ms Amy knew she wasnt going to give me the part even before I was
done, she said to herself. Im sure I wont get it, because she made me mess up.
When the list of parts was posted the next day, Madison didnt even want to look at it. She knew it wouldnt be good news. And it wasnt. The part
she tried out for went to Harriet.
I knew you didnt like my tryout, Madison said when she saw Ms Amy that day. During the audition, you were waving at me to hurry up. You made me forget my line.
At first, Ms Amy was puzzled. Then she said, Oh, Madison, a bug was flying around my head. Im sorry if I distracted you, but I didnt make you forget your line.
Later, after Madison had gotten over being upset, she realised Ms Amy was right.
She was responsible for messing up her lines, not Ms Amy.

not make Madison forget her
Why or why not?
What lesson has Madison learnt?
