{this moment}

{this moment} - A Friday ritual. A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember. -- Inspired by SouleMama




 Usually my Friday posts are wordless, but in keeping with the spirit of NaBloPoMo, I'll give just a little explanation.
 
In the lights of Aronoff Center,
the sparkles on the dress shimmered
just like ruby slippers.
On Sunday, Uncle Chester and I took Foghorn to see the musical Wicked at the Aronoff Center in downtown Cincinnati.  Months before I had found a darling, sparkly red dress at the consignment store (brand new with tags no less) and naturally I quickly dubbed it the "Ruby Slippers Dress."  And, yes, it was the perfect outfit to wear to see Wicked.  My sister wrote about the outing on her blog here, so rather than retell the story, I'll just mention the part my husband found most amusing (especially since he wasn't there to see the stares).










My flying monkey doll. 
I don't know why Chester found
his riding position obscene.
At intermission I quickly took Foghorn to the bathroom and we managed to be about eighth in line.  Just as we got to the stalls, Foghorn looked back at the line of people now stretching completely out the door and hollered, "In your FACE, people in the back of the line!"  I hastily shoved her into a stall, growling about her making a spectacle of herself.  After washing our hands, we pushed our way out the door and saw the line stretching all the way down the hallway.  And, of course, Foghorn couldn't resist one more bellow of, "In your FACE, people in line!"  I tried to explain that what works at a Cubs/Brewers baseball game at Wrigley Field just might not be appropriate when wearing velvet.

The first time she gets popped in the snout by someone for yelling that might cure her. At least for awhile (assuming she doesn't pop them back).

Such a pretty little girl to be yelling things like that.
