Did you hear about the kindergarten teacher, who was trying to help one of her students to put on his boots?
The little boy asked for help, and she could see why. With her pulling, and him pushing, his boots still didn’t want to go on.
By the time the second boot was on, the teacher had worked up a sweat.
She almost whimpered in pain, when the little boy said, “Teacher, they’re on the wrong feet.”
She looked, and sure enough, they were on the wrong feet.
Well, it wasn’t any easier pulling the boots off, than it was putting them on.
The teacher managed to keep her cool, as together they worked to get the boots back on, this time on the right feet.
The little boy then announced, “Teacher, these aren’t my boots.”
She bit her tongue rather than get right in his face and scream, “Why didn’t you say so!!!” like she really wanted to.
Once again, she struggled to help him pull the ill-fitting boots off.
He then said, “They’re my brother’s boots. My Mom made me wear them.”
By this time the teacher didn’t know if she should laugh or cry.
But she mustered up the grace and courage she had left, to wrestle the boots on his feet again.
She said, “Now, where are your mittens?”
The little boy said, “I stuffed them in the toes of my boots…”
Her trial starts next month…
