tAmiNg dE wiLD uN's

I went to this opera..
No, not a real one. what do u think I am ??? sane?
I went to an opera by first graders. my cousin was in it.
I have to admit it was a fascinating experience. like visiting a zoo.
a rare and exotic ecosystem of hyperactive kids whose habits resemble drunk baboons, and their excited parents who are busy capturing everything on tape so they can embarrass their kids 20 years later in front of their dates..

"so u want to marry my son eh ? excellent idea ! do u want to see videos of my son singing in an opera in the first grade ? he's soooo cute. infact all the shows he's done till today is on youtube... and..."

u get the idea. but seriously, it was pretty ok. ofcourse they were out of tune, most were in their own gaga land, some had no clue wat was going on and the teacher was desperately trying to salvage the situation by joining in with the hand movements...
ok ok they were seven i'll back off.
they were actually very good. when i saw the teacher giving cues to the kids , so that they knew the steps, i had a strange deja vu experience of seeing this in a circus. u know where the animal trainers tell the animal what to do by showing them weird hand signals and then u pat their head???
this way u get parrots to talk and dolphins to jump, mebe seals to clap..
nice to know kids are mental equivalents of parrots. hey. i meant the really smart one's.

now i'm not so scared of them anymore. parrots are harmless, unless they attack you and gouge out one of your eyes, right? you don't suppose that happen often, right?

ok ok i gotta go... see ya later !!
