“How was your day, today, Mrs. Mileti?” Asked Cody.
“My day was fantastic, Cody.” I replied
“Really? What do you do after you drop us off at school?” He asked.
“Well, I train new drivers how to drive a school bus, when I’m not transporting groups of children to and from school, and today, I had a new student driver start his training.” I said.
“That’s a really easy job. All you have to do is learn how to drive a car, then, you learn how to drive a bus, and that, is easy.”
“Well, Cody, there is a little more to it than that. Maybe when you turn 18, I can teach you how to drive a school bus.” I replied.
“Oh, no, that’s too easy, I’m going to be a teacher.” He said.
“Oh, how wonderful, Cody! What would you like to teach?” I asked.
“I’m going to teach animals.” Was his response.
“What are you going to teach the animals?” I questioned.
“I’m going to teach animals how to have emotions.” Was his reply.
I continued asking questions as to how one might go about teaching animals how to have emotions. I’m not quite sure I was following how all of that was going to come together. Good thing I have such an easy job.
Thankfully, the topic of conversation changed when Cody asked me to guess what he would be doing this evening. I told Cody I had no idea and to please share with me what he had planned.
“I’m starting wrestling tonight.” He said.
“You are? How exciting! How many years have you been wrestling?” I asked him.
“This is my third year.” He replied.
“What do you like about wrestling. Do you like the, throws, take downs, or pins, best?” I asked him
“I like it all, that’s why it’s called wrestling. Sometimes you rest and the other times, you ling.” He said.
“Really? What is linging?” I asked.
“It’s when you do all the moving, that’s the linging part.”
So, now I know the true meaning of the word, wrestling. Who knew! I’m so glad I have such an easy job! Easy Peasy, lemon squeezy! Have a great night Y’all! 🙂
