Jack Herlocker I promise you don’t want to play this game with me. ☺

I see your dance recital/middle school orchestra concert (but I also acknowledge your pain. I both danced (badly) and played the violin (almost as badly) in middle school. And elementary school. And high school. My mother is a saint.)

And raise you a statewide karate tournament, from check-in 730am, to award ceremony 930pm, all to watch a 2 minute kata and 6 minutes of sparring in the white belt boys 9-10 division, population 3…scheduled over spring break, plus the elementary school science fair 3 days later…

Or shall we talk about the holiday season…holiday pops concert (hs), jazz band concert (hs)-also a fundraiser auction that has cleverly been designed to force parents to stay the entire 3 1/2 hours by alternating group performances in such a way that somehow everyone’s kid is both the first to play and the last. I have no idea how they do it, choir concert (elementary) and 4th grade RECORDER PERFORMANCE. All the same week.

I didn’t even include my daughter’s sports.

God help us all. 😂😂😂

I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up, but I know I want it to be spelled right and punctuated correctly. I guess that’s something.
