Happy May Day!

I'm going to see Wicked tomorrow, even though sometimes musicals trouble me. I find all that bursting into song disconcerting. It shouldn't. I have a mother who bursts into song. Sometimes the music just wells up inside her in the grocery store and can't be contained. Even when we ask her to contain it. And sometimes Madame M(4) sidles up to me with her head titled and her eyes unnaturally doe-y and sings an earnest song about the trials of being a princess. So my own life is not at all song-free, and I anticipate that Wicked will be great. Several people whose judgment I trust have praised it, and all those people trying to sell their kids on the black market for tickets can't be wrong.

We're going tonight. I hope that the black market finds my little child a good home.

Wicked is uber fun. And some of us can't help singing at inappropriate times. Even with all the ugly looks people give us.

E-You made me laugh out loud.

Eliana--I understand about the singing. I have a perpetual song in my head that sometimes expresses itself as musical tourettes. The thing about my mom is that she gets LOUDER when we ask her to reign it in. Fortunately, we're not in high school anymore, so it's okay. I may be using the royal we here.

Yay! My favorite. I hope you like it. I'm so excited that things worked out that I will get to see it again here in VA. Yay for us both!
