Wolfe’s Woofer: How Was School?
Sunday, January 11th, 2015
“I need a favor if you can do it,” Melody said.
“Sure,” I said. “What’s up? Something to do with Davin?”
“Can you pick him up from school for the next two days? The Christmas and New Year’s holidays have me running around like crazy.”
The next day I was waiting outside when the door to the classroom opened and a huge group of eight and nine year-olds came charging out.
“Hey, Grandpa!” Davin said, as he jumped into my golf cart.
“How was school today?” I asked.
“It was great.”
“Did you get punished for anything?”
“Yes, I had to take a time out in the corner for being too loud.”
“Trouble just seems to find you,” I told him.
“Yes, but Robby and Gabriel got punished, too. Oh, and Britney and Susanna got scolded really real good.”
“Maybe you’ll have a better day tomorrow,” I said.
The next day he came running out of class and jumped in the golf cart.
“Hey, sweet boy,” I said. “How was school today?”
“It was great.”
“Did anybody get punished today?”
“Robby and Gabriel? Britney and Susanna? Nobody got punished?”
“No, I don’t think so,” he said. “Except for me.”
