there's nothing like it
There's nothing like watching your oldest daughter play her trombone with the all city band in the local school district's big holiday concert...
...except maybe not having to stay for all the other bands.
*I realize that a good parent would stay and clap for all the bands, but I've never claimed to be one of those. Furthermore, my head is throbbing. Time for some Advil.
*I further realize that I will now be castigated by certain brothers and sisters in Christ for contributing to the War on Christmas by referring to the musical event as a Holiday Concert, but that's what it was called.
