Frankly my dear, I don't give a dang!

This weekend my sister came with her high school drama group to compete in the Utah Shakespearean Festival. My mom accompanied her as a chaperone, so we were glad to see them both this weekend a few times. Part of the reason for coming down to compete is the opportunity to view some of the magnificent plays put on by the talented actors in the festival. My sisters group had extra tickets to their plays on Friday and Saturday, so I was lucky enough to get to go and see the plays with my mom and sis. We saw "Gaslight" on Friday and "Moonlight and Magnolias" on Saturday (Melanie, my sis-in-law, came with us to this one). I had such a good time and am grateful to have gone for free, since the tickets run about $35 for cheap seats. Gaslight was a murder mystery and very intense with acting that makes you feel the same emotions as the characters. Moonlight and Magnolias was a hoot from start to finish. However, the play was definitely NOT suitable for children. It wasn't the best pick for an auditorium filled with high school students. The play was filled with sexual inuendos and curse words from start to finish. Many of the inuendos were subtle, but nontheless inappropriate. I was proud of my sister and some of her friends who left during the intermission to wait in the hallway for the remainder of the play. That was probably the last thing I expected from a group of teenagers. Of course, my mom, Melanie and I stayed and enjoyed the smut!!

I recall a wonderful young woman who was at friends home with a group of teenagers. She didn't feel the movie they were watching was appropriate and left (or was it switching the movie?) with several people following her example. Seems like Karina is also following the example of such a great big sister. Way to go both of you!

The line about you and your mom enjoying the smut seriously made me laugh out loud!
