I have two ちびちゃんs and one of them is taking ballet lessons. She is six years old and she's really cute when she's dancing.

In the middle of GW, there was a performance held by the ballet school ちびちゃん is attending.  That was the main event in GW for me, so I was really looking forward to it.

She told me that the opening time was 4:30 and the starting time was 5 pm. I knew it took 15 minutes to the hall from the nearest station by bus, so I was at the station at 4 pm. I wanted to get a nice seat to see her dancing.

But I took the wrong bus..  The destination was correct.  I heard that the hall was next to city hall, and the bus's destination was city hall.   But the bus I took was on a circular route through the city and the final destination was city hall.

I didn't notice my mistake for more than 10 minutes.   When I realized that I had taken the wrong bus, it was in a quiet residential area.

I asked the driver how long it took to get there.  He said it would take one hour, but he didn't recommend me to get off the bus because I couldn't do anything there.   Stations were too far to walk to and there weren't any taxis there.

About 30 minutes later, the bus stopped in front of a large building which was standing in the middle of an open field. It was a welfare facility. I rushed out of the bus and asked a person who was in the reception desk to call a taxi for me.

A taxi came in 5 minutes.  I explained to the taxi driver about my situation.  He understood from my look of impatience and drove very fast.

I managed to get to the hall two minutes before the event started. I felt relief and happy when I was watching ちびちゃん's performance. Hmm.. it didn't matter that it had cost 2000yen for the taxi fare (The city circulator bus fare is 100yen. )

Too bad...
Hi, Mariko。-san, how's it goin'? Great, So touched you posted
a new journal in English.

There were two ways for the hall... Too bad :-(
You must have been irritated and felt time went fast when you
were in the bus.


Wow, you were like a detective or something.
The phrase "Step on it!" was ringing in your head at the time.


ちびちゃん's performance was worth paying money and taking
a risk, wasn't it?

Hi,Wood-san, how's it goin'?
THank you for your comment!

> Great, So touched you posted a new journal in English.

It's tough to post blog entries in English but your words reassure me. Thank you^^

Initially, I got upset and felt kinda panic, but I realized that it was no use being irritated and tried to calm down myself with listening to my favorite music.
But... time did fly so fast! I don't remember how many times I checked the watch.

> Wow, you were like a detective or something.

Yeah, and "Chase the car ahead!", too. ^^

> ちびちゃん's performance was worth paying money and taking a risk, wasn't it?

The last event was held when she was 4 years old. It was the first time in about two years. And they, children have "age-related" cuteness, don't they? I couldn't afford to miss it and money was not the issue^^
