My dirty blonde (ha ha ha. Funny, I know) hair is chocolate brown, my peach skin is olive green, and my 20/40 eyes are enclosed behind nerd glasses! There’s a good reason for this. Tonight I was Elphaba to my sister’s Glenda. We decided to sing “What is This Feeling” from Wicked for our school’s performing arts showcase. I don’t mean to brag, but we rocked the house. Seriously. My sister is incredibly good. I can harmonize. It works.
It was fun. I got to throw a notebook at her and to sing about loathing her, things my mother would never let me get away with under ordinary circumstances. So that was fun. Having a little girl point at me, saying, “Mommy, what’s wrong with her? Why is she green?” was fun as well. I told her that it was because I hadn’t eaten my vegetables. I love my life sometimes.
Until next time, blog buddies.
