No Love Lost...for the Ballet

"What's happening?"
Twenty minutes into Swan Lake, Alexander leans over and whispers: "Will there be any talking at all?" Eh no, it's a ballet, remember?
A few minutes later, Eliot chimes in: "I don't get what they're talking about...because they are not talking."
What exactly were you expecting when I said we were going to the ballet?
"The theater. Like Matilda." That was a musical.

(Note to self: when bringing kids to the ballet for the first time possibly mention the lack of dialogue.)


  1. Ha ha!! I always hated the ballet as well.

  2. I thought it was a bit long but the prima ballerina was awesome! And of course the music is beautiful.
