The Nature Lover

Last week, we had to fill in a “get-to-know-you” form for our new school principal. We were requested to put down one word or short phrase answers to describe ourselves. For one, I put down, “nature lover.”

No sooner had I written this when a very small wasp landed on the table in front of me. Without even thinking, I swatted it with my bare hand and killed it. Now the background on this is that one of my co-kindergarten teachers is deathly allergic to wasp stings. (So I may well have saved her life, don’t you think?) Anyway, another kindergarten teacher saw what I had written and, having witnessed what I did, cracked up laughing at the irony.
