A tenth grade boy just walked into my room:
“Oh hi, did you get that book I wanted?”
“Yep. I’ve got it right here.”
“Yesssss,” he whispers and smiles.
I hand him the book. He looks happily at the cover, judging it.
“Thanks!” he says, and walks out the door.
Really? The Outsiders?
It’s my first joyful surprise for the day (and it’s not even 10 o’clock!)
