Spontaneity is good.
My sister has volunteered on the Le Cuisine crew at the Winnipeg Folk Festival for the past number of years. I meant to fill in the online volunteer form myself this year and attempt to join her, but somehow the urgency of the everyday kept getting in the way.
She called me on the day before the festival with an amused, slightly apologetic tone to her voice. "I think you're volunteering this weekend....."
And so, that's where I got to play on Friday.
Its been ten years since I'd last made it to the festival, though we thought about it every year. Before I had kids, I always loved seeing families there together; the kids all dirty and happy and hippy. Then I had kids, and I tried it myself.
So, yesterday I got to be a grown-up, all by myself, at the Folk Fest. Woo hoo!!
Have you heard of pasties? No, not pastries. Pasties are about two or three inches in diameter, backed with adhesive, and used as body decor. If I were wearing pasties right now, they would likely be peaking out of the bottom of my t-shirt.
Do ya GET it? Its like a very, very small bikini without the strings.
