Child Two was in a production of “Seussical” this weekend.
The cast also contained my first roommate in Montreal, with whom I shared an apartment on the Plateau in the early ’90s. The Cat in the Hat was played by the daughter of two of my high school teachers, one of whom taught me Traditions (a course in Jewish culture) while the other taught me math and is now the principal of the school, to which Child Two is likely to head next year.
I had a brief but pleasant reunion with my roommate’s siblings. We used to play D&D; together, and they still play. Like I need more activities to attend…. Child Three has hockey practices Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, then games Saturday (two games, one of which is the all-star game) and Sunday.
He played a heck of game this past weekend, saving a point for the team in a 2-2 tie. I should have filmed that game….
My fellow assistant coach addressed our team in French before the game. I was preoccupied in another conversation and didn’t listen to what he said. I guess he told the team that he would speak to them in French, because when he finished, #3 cocked his head and spoke in his European accent, “Ce n’est pas français, c’est québecois.”
