This event is about an hour away from their Twin Cities home base. Still.
During intermission at today's event, an adorable little girl--about Scarlett's own age--approached her and said: "Aren't you Helen Keller?" The whole family circled, in need of Auotograph. Which Scarlett happily gave.
About two minutes later, a wizened couple approached her daughter and said: "Weren't you in The Sound of Music this fall?" and raved.
Just as they were entering the auditorium for Act II, another preteen approached Scarlett: "Are you Helen Keller?"
The Matron, married to a realtor in a down economy, wished she could parlay this into cash. For her, not Scarlett.
Really good post tomorrow, she promises. Today, the easy way out offered its hand and and she took it.
