Most mornings the principal at my son’s school stands out front and greets the kids. About a week ago I teased her, after a cold front had come through that night, about standing inside the building rather than outside and holding the door.
On Tuesday we had a sharp cold front blowing through our city during rush hour. The temperature dropped 11 degrees during the 10 minute drive to school. This time, wearing only a sweater and standing inside the building, the principal saw me coming and with a smile, yelled out, “I should have listened to the weather! I don’t have a coat this morning!”
The front had been well advertised.
If you’re thinking that I’m at fault for her not having a coat…you’re right.
