Well thankfully Aunt Agatha didn’t invite Michael over this week. She had me doing a research project on European kingdoms from 1400 to 1600. I spent all week in the library gathering information. Now I have to put it all together, but I’ll think about that tomorrow. It was really nice not to have to think about it all weekend. Michael had to lose to Ed on Saturday and then to Chris on Sunday. He looked so sad when that had been decided, so, before the gates opened, I told him that losing with grace is harder than winning with it. I don’t know why I say such things sometimes, but he did smile. I think he took it to heart too, because he tried and succeeded in losing with grace. I even heard Justine give him a ‘well done’ and to get her to say anything was done well is pretty amazing.
I can’t believe there are only 3 more Fair Weekends to go. Then the week after that we leave for Europe. I’m going to miss everybody from the Fair, especially Michael. I know I haven’t known him for long. We really only interact at the Fair, which means you tend to get to know the character not the person. Sarah’s a perfect example, she’s my lady in waiting at the fair, totally docile and eager to please. At home she has no problem stating her mind to Aunt Agatha (something I’d never dream of doing). Michael was over for dinner that one night and I’m pretty sure he was out of character there. I get the sense that he isn’t too far off what his character is anyway. Okay I admit it, I like him, maybe even have a crush on him. You can’t blame me you know, he’s nice, he’s handsome and he’s been courting me. Yes, I know that’s only for the Fair, but I just have this feeling that he’s the best suitor because he means it. Well, maybe not to the point of marriage.
