Tacos > School

At the end of the day, I was walking a line of kids to their bus. The last one in line happened to be one of mine.

Before he got on, he turned his big blue eyes on me, got a thoughtful expression, and said, “School just isn’t my thing.”

Then he leaned in closer.

“What is my thing?” He said, before I could even ask.

He leaned in even closer.

“Tacos. It’s tacos.”

Then he got on the bus.
