I live for holiday drama and theatrics - leaping ballerinas and men in white spandex! Each year, at the height of the holiday craze - I treat myself to good seats at my most favorite of ballets. The sound of pointe shoes pitter-pattering across the stage - sets my fiery Mrs. heart a blaze! I sit back in my seat with purse flask in hand - excitedly humming Tchaikovsky's masterpiece on command. Each time I swear it's better than the last - although this may be due to my empty purse flask. Tipsy or not it's my pure magic to behold; this holiday treat glitters like gold!
