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!

  1. 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 :)

  2. 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.

  9. 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. :P <-- me being articulate.
