And my title was way better. You see, my original intent was to write a post about what it can be like at competitions because, well, people can be CAH RAY ZEE! I mean, the stress of getting there on time, gluing eyelashes on an uncooperative kid, and fast costume changes gets to even the most mild-mannered people. But there are some who just have a whole lot of nuts in their jar to begin with - and they all come spilling out at these competitions.
However, while this show is over. the. top. brimming with loopiness and I don't feel that it paints an accurate depiction of what it's like to be on or have your daughter on a competition dance team (then again, I didn't really expect such a thing out of a "reality" show). But it sure is fun to watch. It's kinda like watching a Nascar race just for the wrecks.
