Here are some things I learned while wearing my tutu over The 3 Day event (in no particular order):
*Wearing a tutu on a hot day = extra sweat around the mid-section.
*It’s REALLY fun to dance in a tutu!!!!
*Your arms swing more than you realize when walking, swishing the tutu and ribbons at your side. Whenever your ring, leaves, grass, or any other random object hits the see-through ribbons, they will fray very easily. No more of those ribbons for my tutu (from now on, I’m sticking with the solid ribbons)!
*Stray strings coming off the tutu feel like spider webs to the person walking next to you.
*Little girls may ask you to twirl so they can see the tutu and ribbons spin.
*When wearing a tutu full of ribbons with names on them, many people will ask what it’s about, and then become sad at how many white ribbons there are.*If you are looking to meet “twitter friends” in person, the ribbon tutu makes it really easy to spot you. Yay for getting to meet @ilovemyminivan and @MNHockeyMama in person!
*It’s really fun to dance in a tutu!!! I know I already said it, but it’s pretty much as fun as dancing in a wedding dress. Though, it might have also been due to the fact that last year I couldn’t walk after Day 2, let alone dance, and I was pretty dang excited to be able to dance this year!
*Going to the bathroom in a port-a-potty with a tutu full of ribbons on, sometimes proves a bit challenging.
*It was good to have the tent to myself, because the tutu pretty much took up the other side of the tent.
I’m sure I will add to this list as I think of more. I will also be posting about each of the 3 days in upcoming posts.
