the miracle worker

Sorry, I forgot to tell you about Saturday. I'm not going to blab on and on about my sister's friends, one of whom stayed with us until 4:30, or the party I went to that night with my friends from my old school (well, the girls' school I went to last year). Instead, let me talk about The Miracle Worker.

On a whim, my mom took me, my sister, and my sister's best friend to the nearby Paper Mill Playhouse to see the aforementioned play. Reviewed by the New York Times as being "profoundly moving" and "unforgettable theater" by Time magazine, it's the amazing and sometimes hilarious true story of Annie Sullivan's work with Helen Keller when Helen was but a troubled and tantrum-throwing child in the 1880s. The acting really is brilliant, and I'm not a sentimental person, but I'll say it: this account is touching. Check out the link I've provided--it's work your time, and you just might get sucked in.

By the way, my excruciating stomach pain and fever have returned to finish with me. I type this from my bed, just after having been sent home from school by the (albeit extremely weird) nurse.
