So the Christmas Cantata was last night. Goat #1 was “Chicken #1” in the 1st grade play. I can honestly say, 100% objectively, that he was THE. BEST. “Chicken #1” in the history of holiday pageantry. (I can only imagine how great he’d have been if he’d played a goat. Alas, there were no goats in this tale of the Christ child’s birthplace. Horses, yes. Cows, yes. Goats, no. [Which, if you think about it, is crazy. Hellooooooo? Bethlehem? WAY more goats than cows.]) (Also, is anyone else thinking of “Love, Actually” now? I hope he gets to be “Lobster #2” next year.)(Also, also, I do not even want to tell you how jazzed Goat #1 was about his stage debut. Let’s just say my new nightmare is my sweet brilliant boy coming to me when he’s 16 and saying he’s not going to Yale, thanks, he’s moving to New York to be an actor.)
See for yourselves. Without further ado, here he is (Goat #1 as “Chicken #1”, 1st grade Christmas play, 14 December 2008):
Yes, I tried to correct him when he sang the song for me. No, he did not listen. This is, after all, the kid who gave us James Bond as an apostle.
