I Did Good

Last night was a show night with the little girls, Hairspray. Unfortunately, the Little One had dress rehearsal for the play she’s in this weekend. We had no instant ideas for who to offer her ticket to. After some thought, I decided I would try to arrange a surprise for everyone.

I asked Neeley! Much to my delight, she was able to come home for the evening. I called her mom, Riley, and informed her I had a friend who I thought would fit well with our group. Oops, she was ultra nice and wondered if she should give her ticket to Eva May in case Eva had a friend she wanted to bring since cousin Little One wouldn’t be with us.

You should have heard how pathetic I sounded when I explained that I really wanted her to meet my friend, that she’d heard all about our outings and how she’d be truly disappointed not to meet Riley. Then yesterday, once I knew Neeley was in town, I called and informed Riley that my friend would be meeting us at her house and, on the off chance that she arrived before me, would Riley please let her in and chat.

Yep, worked perfectly! As expected, we had a blast. Dad and the Little One even had time to join us for dinner. And, to top it off, the traveling version of Hairspray turned out to be much better than Broadway one was.
