Just a little humor to brighten your cloudy day.

The  Cowboy Boots


(Anyone  who has ever dressed a child will love this  one!)

Did you hear  about the Texas teacher who was helping one of  her kindergarten students put on his cowboy  boots?
He asked for help and she could  see why…
Even with  her pulling and him pushing, the little boots  still didn’t want to go on. By the time they got  the second boot on, she had worked up a  sweat.
She almost  cried when the little boy said, ‘Teacher,  they’re on the wrong feet.’ She looked, and sure  enough, they were. It wasn’t any easier pulling  the boots off than it was putting them on. She  managed to keep her cool as together they worked  to get the boots back on, this time on the right  feet..
He then  announced, ‘These aren’t my  boots.’
She bit her  tongue rather than get right in his face and  scream, ‘Why didn’t you say so?’ like she wanted  to. Once again, she struggled to help him pull  the ill-fitting boots off his little feet. No  sooner had they gotten the boots off when he  said, ‘They’re my brother’s boots. My mom made  me wear ’em.’
Now she  didn’t know if she should laugh or cry. But, she  mustered up what grace and courage she had left  to wrestle the boots on his feet  again.
Helping him  into his coat, she asked, ‘Now, where are your  mittens?’
He said, ‘I  stuffed ’em in the toes of my  boots.’

She will be  eligible for parole in three  years.
