One of my 7th graders always arrives in the most interesting vehicles. Her dad regularly picks up her & her brothers in a dune buggy, much to her embarrassment and the fascination of the other students: “Whoa! That’s cool!”
But this morning I laughed out loud all the way to my classroom when I saw a large delivery van pull up to the school door … and nothing happened. “Oh,” I thought, “that company is delivering early today.”
Behind me I heard the clink of a truck door open, and turned around expecting to see flats of Pepsi.
Children jumped out instead.
