My high school English teacher told me, “English would never be my first language.”
In school, some kids made the “honor roll,” I made the “parole roll.”
The other day, someone asked me, “Why the book I never wrote had blank pages.”
Growing up, my sister used to tell everybody, “She was an only child.”
I went to take my first driving test at sixteen and showed up “without a car.”
I was looking for my glasses once; finally found them…on my face. (dumb)
When I was in school, I was too shy to be a wallflower…”I was the wall.”
Things we do and say and feel.
We all have our moments.
Hopefully, through it all…
We learn not to take “ourselves” too seriously,
We learn to laugh at ourselves.
These lessons in life make all the difference.
Learn to smile…at yourself.
