I've often been described as as an old soul. I can converse about the different eras, sing songs from different decades and I've always loved wearing dresses from the olden times.
So I was so excited when I learned that our field demonstration for this year would showcase dances from the 50s to the 2000s. Good thing, I was part of the core team. I took it upon myself to write the script for the whole program and decade introductions plus AVPs. I was also tasked to come up with this year's theme which I did: Paulinians sailing forth on the winds of the past.
Aside from that, I was also this year's emcee and I took this opportunity to dress like a 50s girl. I asked our school seamstress to make an additional costume for me, curled my hair, borrowed my hunny bed's white handkerchief and tied it around my head like a headband, threw on a cardigan and a pair of white rubber shoes and voila! I think I looked like someone from the 50s, more or less. My son said I looked like a waitress at a 50s diner. That must mean I did a good job.

It was truly a happy day for me, I got to do what I wanted to do and I got to watch my son perform.....oh, but wait, I have one regret....I wish the teachers had a chance to dance too!
