Miss America pageant

The Miss America pageant is tonight which inspires me to blog again. At my house there will be sushi, foam dart guns, plastic tiaras and ice cream to celebrate the occasion. Not everyone fully appreciates the special magic that is the outdated ritual of young women parading around in swimsuits for “scholarship money.”  I, however, revel in it.

My dream is that this year’s pageant gives us little gems like the quote from last year’s Miss Arkansas. “I am Miss America, she is us, we are her.” She made the Top 5. The winner, when asked to speak extemporaneously, expressed that she was HUNGRY!

I have high hopes for this year!
