A Texas teacher was helping one of her kindergarten students put on his cowboy boots. He'd 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, by the time 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 feet".
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 together they worked
to get the boots back on-this time on the right feet.
He then announced, "these aren't my boots." She bit her tongue rather 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 his little feet. Just as the boots
were coming off he added, "There're my brother'* 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 yet 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.
