She wanted to prove she was their equal, She wanted to show her exciting new friends that even though she was 34 years old and her husband and son were sitting at home in her lovely house in the burbs, there was so much more to her, so much more that she could do.  She was nervous and out of her depth but she was determined to prove to them, and to herself, that she was capable of doing anything they could do
