The kids I teach can be funny cats…

For those of you who don’t know, I teach swimming lessons at a local community center a couple of times a week. It’s a little money in my pocket, a free membership and the best part is that I get to have little friends who are hysterical. Some of them also teach me more than I teach them.

I could give you countless examples, but today I’ll just tell you about the most recent one.

A week or so ago, I was running before I had to be on deck to teach. As I came down the stairs in my brand new bright pink sneakers, I was greeted by a precocious little darling who I’ve taught a few times. This particular child is a little smarty pants in the best possible way, very aware of the world around her, and I have no doubt will go on to do wonderful things.

This conversation took place in the hallway as I was going to shower and change for teaching.

Precocious Little Darling: Ms. Courtney! Ms. Courtney! I love your pink shoes! They are SOOOOOO pretty!
Me: Why thank you!
Precocious Little Darling: They’re just like Wendy’s!
Me: Wendy? (frantically wracking my brain for which Wendy she could possibly mean?)
Precocious Little Darling: You know! The lady in Texas who wore pink sneakers to stand up all day against the mean man who wants to tell people what to do with their bodies.

I doubt that Precocious Little Darling really knows what went on during the filibuster or the reasons behind it, but man, she left me with a smile.

Thank you, Precocious Little Darling!
