It is My daY to pOst Again

Holy Moley.  I can't believe another week has flown by and I still don't have much to say.  Last Wednesday (if you were keeping track) I said I might come back for words later, and I never did.  And here we are, a week later, and all I am babbling about is a whole lot of nothing.

However, I will say this:

My daughter's 6th grade class is doing Taming of the Shrew.  I've been helping and its very fun. (As I type I can hear her practicing her lines in the background.)  It is funny to watch 6th graders try to create romantic feelings.  When Petrucio, who in real life can hardly stand girls, says repeatedly, "Kiss me, Kate" its pretty funny.  He can't hardly look at her.  After each time he practices a scene I ask him where his eyes should be, he tells me and then I ask him where his eyes were.  Not where they should be!!

My sweet Katheryn plays Kate and its funny to watch her be nasty.  She can really do it.  She's never been that nasty with anyone in our house.  She told me she bottles it all up for the play.  WOW!

One of my favorite parts is that each part is double cast.  And each performance will have different actors.  (My Kate is shouting now in her room.)  One Katherine is short (mine) and one is tall.  One Petrucio is short and one is tall.  Its very funny to see the tall Katherine and the short Petrucio paired up.  Especially when Petrucio is pulling Kate around and I have to force the tall Kate to act weak and remember that she should be shorter than the boy.  :)

Oh the fun of young actors.

So, the question of the day is:
A) What hidden personalities do you have bottled up?
B) What mismatched pairs do you see around you?


  1. Fun post DJ. Taming of the shrew is one of my all time favorite plays. I bet that is a big surprise right?

  2. Around me? How about a mismatched pair I'm part of ;D
