Grita guest poster

This email was too great not to share...
A little background:  Dayce is my youngest sister.  I mean this in the most loving way possible:  she is the BIGGEST BAND NERD ON THE PLANET!  She loves band.  Period.  She recently made 1st Assistance Drum Major.  She plays piano and rocks the trombone.  Yes, trombone- not clarinet or flute or even trumpet.  Trom-freaking-bone.  She has passed up many family events, outings, etc. in order to do BAND related things.  I am not talking about a rock band.  Not even a country band.  I am talking about the high school MARCHING BAND.  Oh, but there is more.  She is in Jazz Band.  She is in a Percussion group.  She plays the piano constantly at home. Taps on and with anything she can get her hands on.  And when all else fails, she will whistle.  (Did i mention that I HATE whistling?)  I am telling you, she IS THE band nerd of the century.  What's more is she relishes in the title.  Weirdo.  Talented weirdo.

Keep that in mind as you read the email I got from my mom tonight:

" Well here is something..........lightening knocked the electricity out at the band concert.  Dark and did I mention that Dayce was playing the electric she only got to play 3 songs.............she is absolutely devastated.  WTF?  Who cares? oh yeah Dayce..........Conversation as followed.  .......
DD:It was the last concert of the year,  boooo hooooooooooo
ME: I  guess you dont want any supper.
DD: I am never eating again.
Me: quit acting like that we were there and heard you play the trombone which I like better......
DD:I  DONT.I like the piano best.   I am hoo.......
ME: It is not like this is your last year last concert........
DD: I dont care. I probably wont even get to play on Sunday.
Me: YOu have another concert on Sunday?
DD: YES! I told you yesterday!
ME: Well sorry I did not remember....but we will be there whether lightening strikes again and knocks out the electric piano or not.  You know Lightening never strikes in the same place twice.

I love it!  Especially the boooo hoooo.  For some reason that just cracked me up.
Thanks for the laugh, Grita... er, I mean Dayce.

Grita is the best! If there was only email back in the day and we could see what Grita was thinking about all of our drama:) I love that Grita got a band geek, said with much love, after all the drill team/boy drama of us.
