These Boots are made for Walking
Did you hear about the Texas teacher who was helping one of her
kindergarten students put on his cowboy boots?
He asked for help and she could see why. Even with her pulling and
him pushing, the little boots still didn’t want to go on. Finally,
when the second boot was on, she had worked up a sweat. She almost
cried when the little boy said, “Teacher, they’re on the wrong
She looked and sure enough, they were. It wasn’t any easier pulling
the boots off than it was putting them on. She managed to keep her
cool as they worked together to get the boots back on…this time on
the right feet.
He then announced, “These aren’t my boots.” She bit her tonguerather
than get right in his face and scream, “Why didn’t you say so?” like
she wanted to.
And, once again she struggled to help him pull the ill-fitting boots
off of his little feet. No sooner had they got the boots off when he
said, “They’re my brother’s boots. My Mom made me wear ’em.”
Now she 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. Helping him into his coat, she asked, “Now, where are
your mittens?” He said, “I stuffed ’em in the toes of my boots.”
Her trial starts next month …..
