Reality Bites!

IF

someone you love (the ever-generous Mom #2) is wonderful enough to give you an early Christmas gift

AND

that early Christmas gift is two tickets for yourself and your best friend/sister to see an actual professional performance of The Nutcracker

AND

that performance of The Nutcracker is so magical and beautiful that you come home with an eternal song in your heart and start wondering why you didn't become a prima ballerina yourself (after all you KNOW you have what it takes)

AND

the song in your heart is so big and bountiful that it spills right out into the open and you start singing and dancing instead of walking around the house

THEN

it is very important that while you do the above mentioned singing and dancing . . . you avoid all mirrors

BECAUSE

they will just remind you that you look absolutely nothing like that beautiful ballerina who does The Dance of the Snow Queen in The Nutcracker.


*SIGH*


If I'm too lazy busy to get back on before Christmas, then have a wonderful holiday!



Until next time . . .

Your more beautiful then any one in that play, and you can do what ever you want to do. As long as you believe in yourself as much as I do.

Awww Mom#2 brought a tear to my eye.

I am a 6'4" man, but that does not stop me from going around the house pretending to be Bette Midler in Gypsy.

I had all the mirrors removed a long time ago.

That was so sweet what your wonderful Mom #2 said! It's also sweet that she reads and comments!

It sounds like all of the joy you derived from The Nutcracker was emotional/spiritual anyway, not physical.

AW! You are too beautiful the way you are. Inside and Out. :)


Have a Merry Christmas!

Says who? Those ballerinas are scrawny, ugly bitches. Really easy to float around all dainty and lithe when you weigh 14 pounds.

How awesome that you got to see The Nutcracker, and how lucky you are to have a special person like Mom #2 in your life.

When truth and mirrors collide, always assume it is the mirrors that err ~(Anonymous)

You are far more beautiful than some vapid ballerina!

And INCREDIBLY fortunate to have Mom #2 to give you such a wonderful gift!

Katy said...

Oh wow Mom #1, you are a lucky lady! (But then I'm sure you don't need ME to tell you that!!)

Have a beautiful Nutcracker music filled Christmas!
