I’ve Been Forgiven – and We’ve Got Talent

5 02 2008

The drama, for the most part, is over.  The law has been laid down and they seem to accept it.  They get to call their Dad every night, and for now that is enough.  For the first time in a few days we have seen giggling and happiness creep back into our house.

Maybe it had something to do with getting used to the rules.

Maybe it had something to do with my self-declared “Dance Inappropriately to the Song Day”.  Inappropriately here does not mean hip gyrations, etc.  It means jazz hands during Paul Potts’ version of “Nessun Dorma”, waltzing to “Song for the Dumped” by Ben Folds, it means a chorus line kick ensemble during “I’m Not Crying” by Flight of the Conchords.  If you have never tried to dance inappropriately to songs, you really should.  You will laugh hard.

Maybe it had something to do with Sophie declaring that she wanted to do the Talent Show this year.  According to her, she will either play the piano, or stare at the audience for an entire minute without blinking.

I vote for the latter.

OMG – please videotape and put Sophie’s staring number on Youtube. She is so wonderfully smart and dead-pan that it’ll be fantastic…

Glad things are creeping back to normal – the default in your house-hold is fun, and it always will be.

I also vote for the latter.

It will work as a piece of performance art.

At a local Family Friendly Comedy place here, a guy walks around with a sign that says “Blank Stares 25 Cents” . He walks through the audience holding out his hand.

I vote for the latter as well.
