LET THE RECORD SHOW THAT I AM UP ON MY CURRENT EVENTS. The "important" ones, that is.........
You may recall this little mishap last year. A memorable sight, to be sure.
Well, have you seen this??? De ja vu. I can't believe tragedy struck AGAIN last night, two years in a row! At least the whole world wasn't watching. Maybe only half.
Geesh, my heart goes out to these girls!! And their mothers. I can't imagine sitting in the audience on pins and needles, watching my daughter compete at such a level. And then see her crash and burn. And then applaud herself in an attempt to play it off. (Maybe no one noticed ...)
Can you imagine the pressure?! I practically needed therapy when my oldest made the finals in the "Andover Idol" contest! And that's not QUITE as vast a venue, mind you. All 13 of us in the stands were nervous for our performing children, nonetheless.
My advice to USA's next Miss Universe contestant -- WEAR SOME GOOD STURDY BOOTS with traction, for crying out loud. Those stiletto roller skates aren't working for ya!
