Bless You

Today, my class and I walked past Mrs. Hernandez,  a mother who was a pebble in my shoe all year last year. Our 4th grade team never did anything right in her eyes. Of course once she got her kid's state test scores and saw, despite our perceived ineptitude, that her kid made great progress, we suddenly became her "favorite teachers of all time." 


So when she threw a big hello my way, followed up by a "I really miss having you as my daughter's teacher," I steeled myself to fake an enthusiastic greeting. (Not my strongest area.)

But I was saved by a most unexpected hero. 

Just as little Ricardo was passing by her in line, he sneezed a great big, wet, uncovered and highly unexpected sneeze 

...all over the front of her. 

Bless you, Ricardo. Bless you!

(It wasn't my sneeze, but I'm taking it as a personal victory.)
