There is an elf who comes in when we have all gone home. She takes our costumes, washes them, presses them and leaves them in neat little piles, or hanging handsomely from hangers, to greet us when we arrive the next day.
I am a dancer, choreographer, dramaturge and voice teacher. I speak 6 languages badly.
When my son was 6, he said
"My mom makes the best crème brulée.
She smells really nice.
She has a good sense of what to wear.
She likes to go to the beach with me.
She makes me feel safe when she's around me.
She's the best mom ever."
He is now 18 and makes better creme brulee than me.
I wish I was funny.
