Today, a boy, all of six years of age, held a door open for me. At my school we have ‘First Class Friend’ tickets that are handed out to children who are being ‘First Class Friends’. They can be handed out to children who are being helpful, showing good manners, showing kindness, showing a positive attitude, playing fairly and a few other things.
I wrote one for the boy who held the door open for me. While I was writing it, he said,
“You know I didn’t do it because I like you. I did it because my Dad said you should always do that for ladies.”
At least he called me a lady…
