Because Alex has shown an affinity for the dramatic (ahem), when we found out her school offered a drama club, we didn't hesitate in signing her up. After working very hard all semester long, last night was the drama club's performance of A Midsummer Night's Dream. (Yes, I realize that it's closer to midwinter than midsummer, but work with me here, people.)
Alex was a fairy. Her one line was, "It's PERFECT!!" which she delivered with gusto. (Natch.)
Lest you think that the play was delivered in the original iambic pentameter, let me assure you that instead, there were references to cell phones not having enough "bars" in the forest, and I think even a "dude" was thrown around a couple of times. I'm not sure if Billy Shakespeare would've been proud or horrified.
Alex was well pleased, however.
