Mama the Surgeon

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!
