I need to complain about this privately, sorry in advance.Duckie just had her big Orchestra concert last night. She is viola chair 1 inthe elementary orchestra and so she had the honor of being in the 1st row withthe chair 1 high schooler for the combined 5th through 12th grade orchestra. It's quite a big deal and, in my humble opinion, she's earned itwith all the hard work she's put into her lessons and practicing. I even tell her that she doesn't have to be as talented asthe other kids, she just needs to work harder. So, last night, a lot of the kids and (and a few parentstoo) made cracks that Duckie was "lucky" or it wasn't"fair" that Duckie was seated where she was... it's ****. Duckieworked harder and EARNED this; it was not a gift. It's amazing how lucky one is with a little elbow grease.
