A pirate story from last week:
Long John Silver is usually pretty bouncy at breakfast. He’s so excited to be with his friends – and he’s not much of an eater – and – well, he’s just got to be up on those spindly legs of his!
But there was one morning last week when he sat at the table the entire meal, and we weren’t even serving a favorite of his. I came up and stood behind him, my hands on his shoulders, and said,”Wow, you are so calm this morning. Did you do something different when you woke up today?”
“Yes, I did jumping jacks.”
Later that week I had a meeting with LJ’s mom and told her about the incident.
“Naw,” she said. “I’ve been giving him Benadryl for his allergies. I was worried about giving it to him because it winds his brother up.”
(well Mrs. LJ, I hate to admit this, but breakfast with your pirate on Benadryl, was kind of nice….)
