As some of you already know I transport special needs kids to school, I find a sense
of humor is a very good thing to have...now some of the kids that i transport go to
an alternative school because they don't do well in a regular classroom settin, I
Transported a young man a few years back to just such a school, I'll call him "onion
Snow" because one day it was gettin close to spring and somehow we got the subject of
garden's , I was tellin him about onion snow,he thought i was pullin his leg....until
that very weekend, we had an onion snow
I couldn't wait for Monday to get here
It was at about this same time, that this usually happy young man,had come out of
class for his ride home with me,He looked like a rain cloud, I thought ruh roh raggy
this ain't good....He got in and got settled, and I asked him "Onion Snow" what you
lookin like a rain cloud about?? He said he wished he had hooked school that day,
and he would have if he hadn't hooked to many times already.....
So I said "basically what you're upset about is a lack of planning"
He just laughed and laughed, rain cloud all gone...
Now just today I was transporting a grade school child home,to make a long story short
we had some flooding around these parts a few week's ago, his apartment got flooded
so they moved to a different apartment in the same complex....( Now I already knew
where his new apartment was, but just makin conversation with him, i asked hom to show
me how to get there, he responded "Woman, What am i gonna do with you" I thought i'd
wet myself....he's only 6.
@ Queen Evie,
I can really appreciate your post,and you know why...
about 25 years ago my father had a mild heart attack, he was in the hospital in
Rapid City , he was tired of bein in there, i went in to see him,while I wa there
a lab tech came in to draw blood,Daddy wasn't happy about losin more turnip juice
i watched,when the tech was done, she went to put a bandaid on his arm...that's when
I yelled"WHAT!!! NO SNOOPY BANDAID!!!" my father looked like he wanted to smack me
BUT the tech and I were laughin so hard it didn't matter, she asked him which way
he wanted snoopy facin, Daddy said, towards the next person that want's my blood
by then he was laughin....yes a sense of humor is a great thing to have, I was given
many gift's by my father and his sense of humor was one of em.
That same sense of humor made my mother want to knock both our heads off..BUT I still
got mine...so neener neener neener
