One year Ms. Sandwalk took the entire family to see a full performance of Handel's Messiah. It was agony, except for one brief part of the performance where we all got to stand up. Ms. Sandwalk thought it was wonderful but, remember, she also likes some country music.
My children still talk about it. I guess it's one of those "experiences" that contribute to character building, or something.
Now there's an explanation in New Scientist: How misery inspired Handel's Messiah. I knew there had to be a reason.
