In the Tutu Much post, Mme. Piplette of A La Folie recounts a childhood Christmas in which she we left pondering over her naughty and nice qualities when Santa brought presents for all the children accept her and another girl she was sure that she'd see later in group therapy. With an obsession, close to Messy Marvin in A Christmas Story, Mme. Piplette's Red Ryder BB gun was a dainty, mulit-layered, twirl inspiring tutu.
"...I sat alone in my homemade green velvet culotte and vest set, sans cadeau. I was so embarrassed, I wanted to die... what had I done that was so bad? Was it because I snuck into the pantry and ate all the chocolate crayons my mom had bought for my sister's birthday? No, it was probably because I had forgotten to let that butterfly go and it died in my bug jar. It was an accident, I swear! But I was a murderess, and Santa knew it...."

Remember, you've never to young or old to pull out a tutu for fun or play.
