1. "Bonjour!", I said to the first grade table. "Let's all speak French today! Parlez vous Francais?"
One little boy looked at me with mouth agape and promptly fell off the back of his seat. After some giggles and another, "Bonjour!", their high little voices answered back in unison, "Bonjour!"
2. I can't breathe in enough Lilac scent to save up for even a minute. Why, oh why can't we store it up in our noses to last throughout a day? The blooms are beginning to fade and I'll have to wait an entire year to breathe this heavenly scent again. I suppose this is what makes it so special.
3. The lunch ladies gave me a bowl of delicious chicken and dumplings they had left over. It was more of that good kind of comfort food and it revitalized me for afternoon errands. I was surprised to learn they made the dumplings from scratch.
