A couple of weeks ago I was thinking about the upcoming Memory Lane Fridays and I had a small moment of panic. Third grade? Did I attend third grade? I had absolutely no memory of it. No memory of the school, the teacher, nothing. I called my mom to check and make sure I had a third grade - that I wasn't abducted by aliens that year or in the Bermuda triangle. She assured me that I did attend third grade, and when she mentioned my teacher's name I had an instant memory of a slim, kind figure with short curly black hair. Then I asked, "Was that the year I was Cinderella?" Indeed, it was. So here is my only memory of third grade.
By some mysterious means, my teacher chose me to be Cinderella in the school play. This is baffling, as I have never been able to act. Not one bit. In addition, I had to sing. If you heard me sing, you'd wonder what my teacher was thinking too. She must've been completely loopy. And no doubt the production was torture for those in the audience.
Nevertheless, I was Cinderella for the play, and I had all sorts of costumes for the different scenes, that my mom made. So here's a pic of me in my scrub-wear:
