Today’s things are: blister, frown, opera
Miss Teresa wanting to educate us as much as was humanly possible decided that a culturally and intellectually stimulating excursion to the opera would benefit us all.
My mum frowned when I showed her the excursion form. She wondered what I might gain from a day off school and at the opera of things. I reminded her that learning was about more than numbers, words and scientific fact.
So, with the note signed and my school uniform all ironed and my shoes polished complete with a band-aid over the blister on my heel I set off at a blistering pace to school.
The day at the opera was an experience I shall long remember. I had no idea what they singing about, but the highlight was when the leading lady sang a note that stretched her clothing, and in a flash her dress gave way, and her lady bits appeared before our very eyes.
Who said culture was not uplifting?
