Subject: 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

By the time they got the second boot 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

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.

She bit her tongue, rather than get right in his face and

scream, "Why didn't you say so?", like she wanted to.

"They're my brother's boots. My Mom made me wear 'em."

He said, "I stuffed 'em in the toes of my boots."

She has adjusted quite nicely to life in the HOME.
