I reached over and grabbed the orange. I held it in front of my face and examined it. I gave it a small, mysterious smile. I half blinked my eyelids lazily, while gazing at the fruit with piercing intensity. Then I pursed my lips. The orange, clearly sharing my romantic intent, moved closer. A second later, we were kissing. As I kept my eyes closed, I tried to really *feel* the moment, to *be* the moment, like we did in scene exercises at Young Protégé Acting Camp. ...I felt . . . stupid. I threw the orange down, or maybe it fled, dismayed by our obvious lack of chemistry.
