Today was enjoyable. First, I only sang at 1 Mass. Wait.a.minute. Did she say one mass? Yes, I did. Normally, I sing at least 2 in one day and have an average of three Masses over a weekend. But, today, I did not. It was my choosing. Actually, as an aside, I was offered the opportunity to sub at another church this morning, but I turned the job down.
I had a very good reason turning down work today. It was a.very.good.reason. My oldest daughter, the Mayor, was going to see a production of High School Musical 2 at a community theatre with her Brownie troop and I was one of the chaperones. As a chaperone, I was responsible to pick up and drive 3 other girls. On the whole, the troop consists of a very nice group of young ladies. They are polite, kind and just plain nice to each other. I had three of the best in my van this afternoon. It was fun listening to them talking and giggling together. At one point, I announced it was *secret time*. And, so I asked, which girl (they knew) had a boyfriend. You know what? They told me. Yup! The girls told me who had a boyfriend and apparently the two kids kissed too (on the line at recess). Btw, it wasn't anyone in my group. I don't know her mother all that well, so now I wonder if I should say something to her anyway. Truthfully, I think I won't say anything simply due to the fact that she (the mom) will not be receptive to hearing this news. What I may do, though, is mention it to one of the troop leaders. I know she'll find the right thing to say to the girl's mother.
The girls had a *fabulous* time at the show. Afterwards, the stars were available for autographs. They had such a special time together, I hope their leaders plan another activity for a weekend afternoon.
