I had to perform surgery yesterday. It was an emergency! What...you don't believe me?
Here's what happened: My daughter had a dance competition yesterday. (Her team won platinum which was the highest they could get.) When she put on her fish net tights, she noticed there was a huge hole in them. Not at all acceptable for a competition. She went into full freak mode. "What am I going to do? My teacher is going to kill me!"
I looked at the gaping hole. I knew the studio was closed, so we couldn't just go up there to buy new tights. I had to think fast. "Let me get some black thread," I said.
I fetched the thread and began surgery. I tied it across the hole and crisscrossed more thread over it so that it looked like fish net. When I was done, I examined my work. "What do you think?" I asked.
My daughter looked at it. "It'll do," she said. "Thanks, Mom."
And the good news is, nobody noticed my little surgery job - not even the teacher!
