Totally Nuts

with 9 comments

Went to school for ushering duty for the school’s Open House today. Had to report at the Avenue 2 gate, and it happened that the Band was playing in the Forum. And because I volunteered for the 2:30-5pm slot, by the time I’d guided one family around the area before they went for Tea with Principal, then led another family up for Tea with Principal as well, it was already around 4pm in the afternoon and there was hardly anyone coming.

So I stood at the top of the Forum to watch the Band play.

And standing there, I felt sad. Which was, at the same time, a sense of pride and happiness. Because we all know it is a different thing to play within the Band and hear the music, and to be part of the audience and hear the music. And to be part of the audience watching the Band that I was part of until 3 weeks ago…is a strange feeling. And standing there decked out in school uniform- blouse, pinafore and badges instead of the Band U, well. I don’t even have my blazer or skirt anymore. Had to return it.

I remember packing it into a bag sometime during the week, and I remember doing it with reluctance.

I really shouldn’t be doing this to myself.
