When my youngest daughter learned we were going to the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts in Richmond, the first words out of her mouth were … “This is the worst day ever!”
I have to give her credit. … Abi got it back together fairly quickly and never complained.
Once there, she asked if she could see something Egyptian, because she had studied Egypt a bit in school.
It was a request easily satisfied as not only were we able to take her into a display from that cultures history, but showed her a mummy that’s over 4,000 years old.
What REALLY got her in a good mood, however, was when she spotted a Chinese wine / water vessel that looked like … well … a butt.
From then on, she had fun spotting “butts” and “boobs” along the way.
And yes … She also developed a real appreciation for the various forms of art along the way.
As we were leaving, her mother asked her to rate her day on a scale of 1 to 10 with 1 being the worst and 10 the best.
She gave it a 9 and asked if we could return someday.
