Two things about Big Z (Age 9):

1. She almost never misses school.

2. She doesn’t like Disney princesses.

So, when she missed a few hours of school this morning for a doctor’s appointment, and she got back after only a half day gone, and they said they had cast her as Cinderella in a class play? That was pretty funny.

There’s always a gap, isn’t there, between how other people see us, and how we see ourselves? Or, you know, maybe it was just that no one wanted to be Cinderella.
