This is a photo from last weekend’s Middle School performance of Bugsy Malone. Although Bossy couldn’t tell you what that musical was about if you held a gun to her head, even after two performances which is like five total hours of Bugsy Malone Immersion, it warmed Bossy’s cold-blooded giggling in the school auditorium like a kid in church heart to see that many kids on stage, especially the numerous boys.
Bossy is thrilled that participating in musicals is a cool event in her neighborhood schools, just like it’s cool to be a part of the marching band and the debate team and the school newspaper and the football team and everything else the district has to offer.
Because disengaged is so Class of 1984.
Special bonus points if you can spot Bossy’s daughter.
