Kids or beer?

Yesterday, the two girls I tutor told me that they were going to be Chocolate in their 5th grade school play tonight. They suggested that I watch.

But Wednesday nights are quiz night!

It wasn’t much of a dilemma. The play was at 1900 and quiz night starts at 1930. I still made no plans to be at quiz night. I had to go to a school play.

They found me in the audience part way through and they had the biggest smiles. Then after the show, before finding their families, they ran up to me. I told them they were awesome. And teased them that they didn’t warn me that I would also have to sing and dance as part of the audience participation. They giggled.

It was so worth it.

And I even got to quiz night in time for the first quiz. We came in third after a miraculous come from behind. Our two ringers were MIA tonight, so we had to make do. We had fun, and that is what matters, right?

And once again, I have the best life ever.

Kids AND beer!

    I love seeing the smiles! I try to go to my church kids’ plays and concerts when they remember to tell me, and it just makes their day. :)


  2. I admire you, K. The tutoring is one thing, but this was entirely a lovely gesture on your part. You’re a very special person.
