Boys and girls, guess what? I am going on a special trip this weekend. It's a very special place. where do you think I'm going?
J: Are you going to the North Pole??
K: The super bowl! Is it the super bowl??
R: Altoona! Are you going to Chuck E Cheeses? I went there for my birthday.
T: Pizza Hut?
Me: "No. Although those were all great, great guesses, they weren't exactly right. I am going to New York City!" I explained to the kids where I was going, and why. Then, I asked them for some advice.
"Kids, I need some advice. What should I say to the people in New York City?" (Keep in mind they are shouting this stuff all at the SAME time..."
Ethan: "Tell them your name. Say, ' I am Mrs. Patrick. Please publish my book.' "
J: "Tell them you like their hair."
B: "Make them brownies. Lots of brownies"
Anthony: "Take them cupcakes! Oh, and candy, too!"
J: "I think you should make them enchiladas."
S: "You need to wear a church dress. "
A: "I think you should wear gloves."
C: "I think you should wear big earrings. "
Ethan: "A clown. You should wear a clown."
Me: "A CLOWN?? You think I should dress up like a CLOWN???"
Ethan: "No. A CROWN!! You should wear a CROWN!"
Rebekah: "Yeah, a crown and some nice shoes."
So, in keeping with the "nice shoes" advice, here are some suggestions from the girls in my class:
These are lovely furry boots that go well with a nice long-sleeved purple-striped dress.
These are brown leather boots that sport a fighting woman on the side. I think perhaps I need her mojo.
These Lelli Kelly shoes sparkle even when the sun don't shine!!! I MUST HAVE THESE. Do they come in a woman's 6????
Oh, R, when you wore these today with your swirly polka dot dress, I almost called your mom to see if I could adopt you. I think I'll go with the Dorothy Slippers. Those will SURELY impress the publishers. (They have a sense of humor, right???)
