Vying for the honour of being called Today’s Perfect Moment are two finalists.
After a week of oppressive heat that had me experience Japanese summer flashbacks, we got a Noah’s Ark amount of rain.
I was in my classroom when the bright afternoon sky became cloudy and dark. Suddenly my smartboard was much more visible. This phenomenon was accompanied by what can only be called a class-wide-moan. This was followed by a class-wide-grumble about not having an umbrella.
When school was finished the sky had once again become bright and I was able to enjoy a lovely walk to the subway with one of my colleagues. I had escaped the deluge that I witnessed from my classroom window.
When I emerged from the subway, after what seemed like a long ride punctuated with delays and apologies from the operator, the sky had turned dark, but rain hadn’t started falling again. This was saved until I was safely on board the bus with my nose buried in a book. Once again, I remained unscathed.
Cookies. I always appreciate it when a student gives me chocolate, or cookies, or in this case, chocolate covered cookies. These were not from his country and I suspect they were purchased at the dollar store. Nonetheless, my enthusiasm for free chocolate food could not be dampened.
Hard to top a good rain storm. Perhaps if there had been two cookies instead of one.
