Duck, Duck, Goose

"It is a clear gain to sacrifice pleasure in order to avoid pain."
--Arthur Schopenhauer 

Whew! So I finally got to wear my boots. Twice now. Monday I wore brown boots with black skinny jeans, and today I'm wearing black high-heeled boots with a black maxi skirt. I've decided boots are the only redeeming aspect of cool(ish) weather. Boots and cranberry sauce.

In other news, Mo is once again going to be in her dance studio's production of The Lovely Ducklings in December. The Sunday show will be emceed by Miss South Carolina Ali Rogers, so it's shaping up to be quite a big deal. It would be a wonderful new Christmas tradition to start with your family. (Shameless plug.)

The director asked if I would like to be in the show this year, which would totally have fulfilled #4 on the bucket list, "Perform in community theater," but I turned down the opportunity. This is kind of a big deal for Mo, and I'm sure she wouldn't be too thrilled to have me on her stage.

But before you start patting me on the back for my generous sacrifice for the sake of my baby, just know that there is not even a tiny part of me that wants to share a stage with Miss South Carolina while I'm pretending to be a duck in a feather-covered tutu.

I'll pass on this one, thank you very much.
