To everyone participating in the readathon, enjoy!! May you fill your day with as many fantastic books and delicious goodies as possible.
Me? I am currently sitting in a darkened auditorium typing this between dances as Holly and I are at yet another dance competition this weekend. There will be little reading for me today, but that is how it goes. Daughters come first.
Just so I understand when you’re at these dance competitions, you don’t have down time in between to read? Or is it too difficult to read with everything else going on? Not that I’m trying to pressure you to read or take time away from your daughter, especially not that.
Myself: I didn’t participate yesterday because it was my wife’s birthday and I spent all day with her. Not that I’m complaining. 🙂 It was a good day.
Imagine trying to read at a movie theater or a concert. That is probably the closest comparison I can make. It is loud in the theater. It is dark, and the audience is forever shifting, getting up and leaving or sitting down as their children take the stage or leave it. It is possible to read if you can ignore the distractions, and I am getting better at being able to do so. One of the problems I have is that Holly’s team has almost fifty dances that they bring to a competition. Depending on the weekend, these can all occur in one day or be spread out among three days. Either way, there usually is not much time between their performances, and I want to make sure I watch them. So I end up not distracted by the noise or the audience but more so by figuring out how many dances are left before the team retakes the stage. Does that make sense?
Yep. 😀 Gotchya.
