Over the weekend us grand daughters and Aunts
took my Oma to see the Nutcracker!
It's a Christmas time tradition.
Every year when we were little
my Opa would take us grand kids to the
Nutcracker Ballet in Cincinnati.
It was one of the best parts of Christmas time.
Everything was so magical.
This year I noticed
that when you get older things get less magical.
until you have a child, and can then see
the magic through their eyes.
I really can't wait for that!
So I figured I needed to write out a few
statements on common curtsy when
attending a Ballet
1. If you are sick... Please stay home.
Sell your ticket on ebay, gift it to a friend, hell give it to
the lady working the drive thru line at McDonald's for all I
care just please don't come to an arena filled with
3000 plus people and spread your germs!!!
2. If you are sick with a hacking cough
and you do decide to
drag yourself into public,
pack a bag of cough drops for petes sake!
3. If you are 30 minutes into the show
and you realize that you can't go 5 minutes
with out hacking all over the person in front of you
kindly excuse yourself to the lobby.
4. Why do we have to clap every time
Mr. Ballerina lifts Mrs. Ballerina in the air.
She clearly weights maybe 90lbs
and he clearly has the muscle of an ox.
You are ruining the end of the music with
your loud clapping. Just wait until the end
of the song!
5. To the person who always has to have
the last clap.
Over all it was a beautiful performance.
I sanitized my hands about 235097 times.
and made sure to chug some orange juice
as soon as I got home.
Next year I'm wearing a mask.
