That said it was quite fun.
Sandwiched between the beginners and intermediate tap demonstrations - not only intermediate tap better but they dress better too, I read my short story Quietly Efficient about a lawn mower that goes to the bad. I got applause, twice, as did everyone else. I was also thanked for having the gumption to read to an audience. I hadn't realised it was supposed to be a chore. Lucy also read her piece about Clapham Common which was equally uncritically appreciated, but it's a good piece and deserving of plaudits. And Julie, our teacher, fortified by the odd plastic cup of wine, looked pretty happy, and so she should be. I think she's been excellent.
More class again on Wednesday, possibly some poetry and then we have a week off for half-term.
