Subject: Motherly Brag
Pardon a mother's BRAG, dear SHAKSPERians, but this is almost one for
the books, and you must permit this parent to think, for a few moments
at least, that she's raising her young'uns right, after all, if she is
able to pass on such stellar news to like-minded folk such as
yourselves, to whit: our Maire, aged 14 and a freshman in high
school--and we're talking about a BIG high school, with a well-respected
drama department (South Salem High School in Salem, OR)==has just been
cast in the school production of HAMLET as... yikes, Himself. Yepper,
Hamlet the Dane. Rehearsals begin straightaway after Christmas break
for mid February performances. We are simply stunned. As soon as I
heard the news--or at least as soon as I was once again capable of
speech--I said to Maire, "Better start memorizing NOW, girl."
I assure you, she doesn't get it from MY side of the family. I couldn't
perform my way out of the proverbial paper bag.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all...
