A – Z April: P

An old but good one.

Tim fidgeted his way up to Miss Williams’ desk. “Miss Williams, I need to use the potty.”

The small child was well known for doing what he could to get out of class. Miss Williams said, “Are you sure you have to go?”

“Yes.”

There was a sure way to weed out the fakers in her first grade class. “First recite the alphabet, then you can go.”

The boy sighed, “A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, I, J, K, L, M, N, O, Q, R, S, T, U, V, W, X, Y, and Z.”

It was unlike Tim to get the alphabet wrong, no matter how much he was trying to get out of work, so Miss Williams asked, “Tim, where’s the P?”

He responded, “Running down my leg.”

      1. It was. He was trying to help me get my laundry out. So I lifted him up and helped him get in there, and he smacked his head against the little metal clasp. It didn’t leave a mark or anything, but it wasn’t pleasant.

      2. I hate it when I hurt my kids like that. It happens to everyone occasionally though – these accidents. Alex’s grandmother once put a dining room chair on his foot and sat on it.
