we went to the ballet- Meg's report

Today we went to the ballet thanks to my fabulous boss's generosity. It was a fundraising concert for Tohoku and it was held at the big concert hall in Matsumoto. Not on the global arts map or even the national one but a pretty big deal for us girls!

So, here's Meg's diary report of the event. (She writes a diary report of something that happened on the weekend each week and submits it to her teacher.) I have translated it but left in the commas (she seems to use the ones I leave out!)

On Friday, I went to see the, ballerinas.
It was really, when they turned was really, amazing.
But, at that time, everyone was really, tired, so we went home a little early.
But, it was really fun.
Half way through, my throat, got really dry, but, I put up with it, and I got a mint lolly from mum, but even after I got it, my throat was still, dry.
But, on the way home, I drank lots of water, and juice, and bought, juice and because, of that my throat wasn't dry, anymore and I was really relieved.
So, now, when I go, to shows, and see shows and stuff, I'm going to properly, take water, and juice and drink it properly.
But, it was ok, because I went home, early.
But it's ok, because, even now I'm, drinking water properly.
The best, bit was, we got seats and, we could see, properly and that, was really fun and, I was happy about, that.
And, I think when, you see, various shows you need, to do your best to watch them happily and, go home happy.
I want, to have another, fun Friday.
Please write your reply, on page six.
Because I wrote five pages,
(the next page has been headed 'page 6')

Phew.... glad the ballet got at least a single line mention huh? Never knew just how distracting a dry throat could be...

That is an awesome report. I wish my dd would write more like that. She would write; "we went to the ballet."
"It was fun." "We drove home." Meg's is much more interesting. :)

I agree, I love the way she writes. I bet out of all the "weekend journal" pages the teacher reads, that Meg's is by far the most interesting. : )

haha!! She either must have had a very dry throat or she didn't overly like the ballet, lol!!
