A minor let down

Today was Clara's Christmas play. She had two lines in it as one of the narrators and, having practiced them with me everyday for a couple of weeks, she knew them by heart:
...
- A nice girl would at once exclaim
....
- Not Goldie, she begins to swear, she bellows
...

In spite of a really bad cough tormenting her since yesterday, she was very excited about the whole thing and completely confident about getting on stage and playing her part properly. At the dress rehearsal, earlier today, everything went according to plan.

Then the big moment came. The gymnasium was packed with drooling parents and proud siblings when the play started and everything was going fine. Suddenly, another kiddo gets a bit confused and shouts her line too early. Clara ended up only delivering her second line.

What a let down.
