Then DS and I were talking yesterday afternoon about the kids signing up for today's Career Day topics. They talks are going on in 4 different classrooms at once, so for each time slot, the kids have a choice of 4 career talks.
DS said, "I picked you. It was hard. There's a dog trainer the same time as yours."
And later: "I think four kids signed up for yours. Me and Michael and two girls."
This doesn't mean I'll be talking to only 4 kids, which would be bad enough. It means I'll be talking to the 4 kids who wanted, at least marginally, to listen to me ... and probably about 26 listless hooligans who really wanted to see a dog trainer, only the dog trainer talk was full.
I'll let you know how it goes … if I ever return….
