Further proof

I volunteer every Monday for Emma’s teacher. I do officey type stuff…copies, cutting, assembling, stapling… You know, the stuff the teachers don’t have a lot of time to do because they’re TEACHING.

As I was checking in at the office, the class intern (a high school student) was just checking out. We greeted each other and then the following conversation took place…

Her: Hi!

Me: Hi! How are you?

Her: Good! Are you volunteering in the classroom today?

Me: Well, I’m actually headed to the volunteer workroom for her today.

Her: Oh. Shoot.

Me: Why? What’s up?

Her: It’s just that you’re the Tallest Mom we have.

Me: Um…what?

Her: She needs stuff to hang off the ceiling and I’m too short to do it, even when I’m standing on the chair, so I was just thinking since you’re the Tallest Mom we have, that you might be able to reach it.

Me: Well, of course if she needs help in the classroom, then that’s where I’ll go.

Her: Oh, good. I’m sure you’ll be able to reach it.

As far as I’m concerned, it’s only a matter of time before the transformation to my alter-ego is complete…

  2. Too funny! I volunteer for a reading program at our school and we keep our paperwork on this really high shelf. The other tall mom and I joke about how you have to be tall to run the program, otherwise you wouldn’t be able to reach the stuff.
