on cloud nine

{Carly and Miss MM at the Morgan Keegan Tennis Championships}

As we entered the stadium, their eyes grew wide and they chattered nonstop. They fired millions of questions at me as they soaked in their surroundings. Obviously, to them, the men's match flew by because they both wanted to know if it was really over. After a trip to the restroom, they returned with the holy grail of information - the answer to the question of how to get an autograph. They had been talking about getting an autograph since we left the house. I had told them that I had no idea how to accomplish that. But they said the "bodyguard", told them when and where they needed to go. And sure enough, they ended the night with Melanie Oudin's autograph! As the night came to and end {at 10:30!!}, there were at least 2 little girls on cloud nine!

I would have loved to have info like that when I got to go to the US Open many, many years ago. Getting Andre Agassi's autograph would have been a dream come true!

well, it seems exciting! I am going to have to google Melanie Oudin to find out who she is- I mean I know she plays tennis but I have never heard of her.

Glad she had fun!
