Cowboy Boots



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 .

And that, in a nutshell, is why my kids wore sneakers with velcro tabs.

Euripides, it's called laziness and I can relate.

That's why little boys are more fun and little girls are more fussy.

Too bad the little girls sometimes never outgrow it.
