Need a Smile Today? :-)

Did you hear about the Texas teacher who was helping one of her kindergarten students putting on the cowboy boots she’d asked her class to bring for a project? He asked for help & she could see why.

Even with her pulling and him pushing, the little boots still didn’t want to go on. Finally, when the 2nd boot was 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.

“There” she said, “Now you look like a real cowboy in your beautiful boots”.

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. And, once again she struggled to help him pull the ill-fitting boots off his little feet.

No sooner they got the boots off and he said, “They’re my brother’s boots. My Mom made me bring ’em.”

Now she didn’t know if she should laugh or cry. But, she mustered up the 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 down  in the toes of the boots so’s i wouldn’t lose ’em.”

Her trial starts next month . 🙂


  1. Since this is pick on teacher day I found these on the “Jokesaboutteachers” site:

    Teacher:Maria, go to the map and find North America.
    MARIA: Here it is.
    TEACHER: Correct. Now class, who discovered America?
    CLASS: Maria.

    TEACHER: John, why are you doing your math multiplication on the floor?
    JOHN: You told me to do it without using tables.

    TEACHER: Glenn, how do you spell ‘crocodile?’
    GLENN: K-R-O-K-O -D-I-A-L
    TEACHER: No, that’s wrong
    GLENN: Maybe it is wrong, but you asked me how I spell it.

    TEACHER: Donald, what is the chemical formula for water?
    DONALD: H I J K L M N O.
    TEACHER: What are you talking about?
    DONALD: Yesterday you said it’s H to O.

    TEACHER: Winnie, name one important thing we have today that we didn’t have ten years ago.
    WINNIE: Me!

    TEACHER: Glen, why do you always get so dirty?
    GLEN: ! Well, I’m a lot closer to the ground than you are.

    TEACHER: George Washington not only chopped down his father’s cherry tree, but also admitted it. Now, Louis, do you know why his father didn’t punish him?
    LOUIS: Because George still had the ax in his hand.

    TEACHER: Now, Simon, tell me frankly, do you say prayers before eating?
    SIMON: No sir, I don’t have to, my Mom is a good cook.


  2. JR – Not at all! You will be quite certain when i’m getting back at you for ALL those – you young Whipper-snapper. Heh! (See?) 😉

    It is actually quite the contrary, besides the fact that the joke had Texas in it when i heard it i intentionally did not change it as i thought it might be an Homage to my good blog-friends from The Lone Star State like you ( Hi Michelle!) 😉

    Ed – you started my day of with more than one smile! Kids have a wonderful ability to see things literally in such a way as to make us all think twice about some of the things we as adults can often take for granted as the ‘only’ way of seeing things.

    A great reminder and very funny! 🙂 Thank you so much.
