Define "good", please. 

The day before yesterday, I was coming out of school with Tara, when she ran off to hug a young man at the school gates. I recognized him as being one of the leaders of her theater workshop. I didn't catch their entire exchange, but I distinctly heard him saying, "Are you good at school?"

Yesterday I received a letter, via the school, from said workshop. Apparently the children are to perform at a charity thing on Saturday. Real stage. Real audience. The letter requested that we call to confirm attendance, given the short notice.

I called and said, "Tara would love to be there, but are you sure you want her?"

I could have been joking, since I made no reference to her previous performance.

"Oh, don't say that. She was really good last time", the organizer replied.


That was one of her "good" moments?!

We'll go on Saturday. But only if I can stand in the wings with one of those hooked sticks so I can yank her offstage if necessary.

And I'll be sure to bring sunglasses and a hat. Possibly a fake beard and a stone to crawl under.
