The Time I Got Migraines to Avoid Ballet

I remember it like it was yesterday.Another event, just like all the others.

One where I’m out cash, have to dance around and wear a silly costume.

Is Ballet and Brownies some regulated form of torture Right of Passage?

Ballet Recital Raggedy Ann
Because every girl dreams of a mop like that…
To make a short story even shorter, fortunately for me, I got a migraine and never had to return to “The Ballet”.

You ask my Mother and she’ll tell you that

I loved Ballet.

Ya, like a migraine.

So I was trying to think about what teaser I would leave you with for next week. I mean, by now, I’m 12 years old which is half way to 24 and at the rate I’m going, that might just be next week.

I could leave you with “The time my girlfriends and I watched Risky Business for my 12th birthday”. No, the 12 is not a typo. Regardless, I already ruined that surprize.

Or, I could tell you about the time that I moved schools out of my own free will and had to take a bus instead of jumping over the back fence. Which I never actually did but I could have because my house backed on to the school property. I really shouldn’t be using the past tense because my Mother still lives there and my Dad grew up there. We also went to the same high school. Wow, I didn’t bore tell you a lot.

But if I told you that then I’d need to tell you about the fact that I changed schools to pursue some “Gifted Curriculum” (cause I’m really smart don’t you know). Then, I’d have to share about the time that my Mother made the Reviewers re-check my scores because to quote her “I sure was gifted but not in the ways they thought I was…”.

But that would all be boring and seem like I was tooting my own horn and I always never do that.

So I think that I’ll leave you with the *first* time that…

“I Tore my Knee Cartilage and had Surgery”

Because I’m pretty sure that with a title like that you’ll be sitting on pins and needles until next week in anticipation of what exciting morsels of literary genius I will come up with.

Besides, I’m running out of stories that I remember prior to yesterday and it’s high time that you knew about my life as a Championship Downhill Skier.

Get Caught up in the Series, it’s Addictive!

    Hooray for knee surgery! Well, I guess not hooray but it’s a club that I have a membership card for. Apparently in high school, it’s alright to have a week long rugby lesson without getting any actual lessons….Probably should have sued but then I’d have been “That Guy”. Hope you have some knee surgery photos to share 🙂

    LOL umm you crack me up!! Can’t wait to see next weeks post. Your posts are always a good way to start my day. Like a good cup of coffee and better than my morning newspaper.

    LOL thanks my friend for the daily laughs.

    Great way to start the day! I love how your mom thinks you loved ballet but you actually didn’t! How many things do we make our kids do b/c it’s really what we want them to like?!

    Oi, I’m always so worried about my knees. Must look into how to take better care of them. I got migraines to avoid many, many things as a child. And just plain got migraines a lot. I used to make myself sick at Hallowe’en from the excitement and completely miss out on the candy gorging. Good thing I had a little brother from whom I could pilfer.

    “I sure was gifted but not in the ways they thought I was…” Ehehehehheheh. 😛 <-- me being articulate.
