Three Things Challenge, 01 August 2018


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?

    Nothing like a good show…lol

  2. Do you really call it an excursion? We call school outings, “field trips.” I’m fairly certain most of the students I have had couldn’t define the word, “excursion.” which of course makes it all the more fascinating that you use it in another country.

    What is it they say? “It’s not over till the fat lady sings.” Costume malfunction will be the headlines in the newspaper.
