One time, my Mom had a performance in a student recital after school. It was with her trio (Mom on the piano and two other girls on violin and cello). She grabbed a dress and black tights to change into after school. When she got to the conservatory practice room, she put on her dress and black tights. Uh oh! She had accidentally grabbed a pair of black tights with big holes all along the right side. Grandma always told Mom to throw away socks with holes in them but Mom didn’t listen. The holes were on the side that faced the audience! The dress wasn’t long enough to cover all the big holes. The stage was raised above the chairs in the auditorium. The audience had a spectacular view of all the big holes on Mom’s tights. Mom was sure the audience was more focused on her odd attire than her trio’s stunning performance.
