Back in the dressing room, while Gracie changed back into her street clothes, a small glossy program guide was slid under the door. It was the program for the evening’s performance. Gracie had to rub her eyes twice to believe what she saw, for there right on glossy front cover was the title of the ballet, Giselle,in pink letters and then the words, Featuring Prima Ballerina Gracie Grey. She would keep this program forever. By some mystical force, she had realized a life long dream. For one whole performance, she WAS the “en pointe” ballerina that she had always dreamed she would be and in her favorite ballet. She emerged from the dressing room with her pink bouquet, the program and musika still inside the flowers, only now he was asleep. She could see his big belly and realized that he must have found some great morsel of food to eat and now was fast asleep with a full tummy, as mice are known to do. Her mother was waiting for her in the theatre by the exit door and they both hugged and cried in rapture and exiting arm in arm laughing and sharing all there was to share after such a Pink event; the surprise, and how did Gracie keep such a big secret and where did she study the ballet and so on until they passed the ice cream parlor, which was till open and which they could not pass up. They celebrated with Pink sherbet floats. And, for some odd reason, Gracie was not surprised. After all, the person behind the counter who waited on them was dressed in pink and Gracie couldn’t help but notice a tiny bit of pink glitter on her shoulder.
