We whooped and hollered for her as she crossed the stage, and managed an intercept as she was coming out. Michelle had flowers, and I had a silly plastic lei. I think getting them to her was something of a joint effort, with the crowd! Afterward, I found everyone else, but lost Michelle in the crowd! (She had another graduation to go to, though.) It's great to see Chaos graduate. Welcome to the adult world, kid!
I had walked over, and walked back to my place. On the way back, I was a little startled by my shadow. I had furled and stowed my parasol, and thrust it through the belt portion of my fanny pack (yeah, like a sword). I looked at the shadow of someone with a projecting shoulderline (shoulder pads), a big hat, and this swordlike thing, and it looked like the shadow of a wandering ronin! If I'd had a haori over the dress, to complete the sleeve shadow, it would have been complete (but it was too hot). Hmmm.
