Best Things are Free Day 20


This is Wendy's idea. Wendy doesn't have a blog, because she sews, unlike me. 

So, it went like this: I rouse the kids out of bed. I tell them they've got ten minutes to get in the car. They're late, they're late, they're late! Here, take a hairbrush and brush it in the car. Just slip those shoes on and tie them once you're at school. Doesn't matter if the socks don't match. Just go! We're late, we're late, we're late!

Up at the school--oh no!--we are so late that all the kids are already in class! Hurry, hurry, hurry. Go on, get out of the car and run to class!

And there they go!

*hee hee hee*

Hey kids! Hey! April Fool's!

And they turn around, drop their backpacks and hang their shoulders. We were really extra early at the school. We all laugh. I hug them, put them back in the car and take them to breakfast at a restaurant. 

Not so bad, am I?

Haha, gemeen hoor. Maar wel leuk!
Ik ken trouwens helemaal geen Wim! Bij mij heten ze allemaal Peter. Soms is Nederlands net Duits eigenlijk. Maar soms ook niet.

Oh yes, limits. Knowing them and be happy with them officially makes you a grown-up, and probably a tad boring to all young ingénues around. Let's hope we'll see a couple of them discovering their talents and creating their own possibilities!
