We have a busy rehearsal and performance schedule coming up this weekend. And every performer knows, where there are rehearsals there is also lots of waiting around doing not-very-much.
I was talking about preparing my bag for this, with stories, games, and so on to entertain the large group of potentially-bored children. Fainjin overheard me…
“Mum! If you’re getting a story for my class, can it be a miff?”
“I don’t think I know what that is. What’s it about?”
“Uh, it’s like… a legend…”
“Oh! A myth!”
“Yes Mum! M-Y-P-H. Myph. Like a legend.”
I spelt myth out for him and had him repeat it. Then breakfast conversation moved on and he and Pearl started an argument about Medusa, the Minotaur, and the Gorgons.
Some mornings I really feel like I need a second cup of tea.
