I missed the Friday portion of JuggleFest this year because it conflicted with our elementary school's Teacher Talent Show.
It was an easy choice. The teachers put a lot of effort into the show and it's a hoot. It's unique among talent shows that I've seen, in that there's almost no attempt to show any sort of talent.
I mean that in the best possible way: what the teachers try to do is do some funny skits and entertain their school, and they do it grandly.
Nonetheless, some talent slips out. The art teacher crafted a wonderful bird's head costume. One of the teachers from the Vietnamese program played the theme from Beauty and the Beast on a keyboard; it was sappy and magnificent.
But it's the ones who look uncomfortable up there in silly costumes, and who do it anyway, that get me every time.
