Meet You By the Handball Wall

A few weeks ago I went to see my friend, Abby, perform in her class musical about the state of CA...I walked on to the school grounds and had a weird mix of feelings.

Remember, as a kid, when you would walk on to the playground alone {like to go to the bathroom or the office} and it would feel so intimidating and scary?

And now, as an adult, walking on to the playground by myself {waiting to meet Ryanne and Katie}, I felt so creepy...I almost wanted to say {to the custodian, to the passing teacher}, "I'm here for the performance...other adults are coming here to meet me...I'm not just a creep-fest lurking around the playground alone."

Funny how perspective changes things.
