A few weeks ago, (HRH) Berkeley evinced some fear when two lacrosse players ran by her in full costume with their sticks. Of course, looking like the photo at left Impact by Geoff LaRose from Jesuit High School, Tampa, FL didn't help any either!
After the film festival I waited with the kids for their parents to come and pick them up. Carter, who happens to be the goalie for the lacrosse team, had his lacrosse stick with him and was twirling it around. Since HRH was a bit skittish, Carter happily twirled the stick for HRH to see if she would get comfortable with it.
Darth must have emboldened her.
We will still be attending a lacrosse match at some point in the future. Something tells me that twirling the stick and a full on match are two completely different things.
