I have a friend who was a wonderful teacher. The kind who won “best teacher of the school” type teacher.
Though not in the classroom full-time these days, She now substitutes and earns a little money tutoring.
This was a recent encounter with one of her pupils, a second grader.
“Ms. M., you have a mustache.”
Her reply. “I have a mustache? Is it light or dark?”
“Light,” the pupil said.
My friend not the least undone by her student’s blinding honesty remarked, “I also have coffee breath.”
His response, “Yeah. But I wasn’t going to mention that.”
Hope you are getting all your last minute holiday preparations done.
And in all the rushing around, don’t forget to wax that upper lip.
