Helen began her evenings, since she started her first week as a kindergarten teacher, with a glass of wine.
Her degree hadn’t prepared her for constant chatter and the “Why? question” hundreds of times a day!
By the next Monday, she worried why Lydia (the one student who sat quietly observing) hadn’t join the chaos. Helen became concerned about identifying a ‘learning disability’ frequently described by professors, so she decided to investigate.
“Lydia, why don’t you ask questions?”
“I didn’t want you to think of me as loquacious.”

Very enterprising to have a limit of words for “loquacious”…😎
Ah… I hadn’t realized that. A less wordy attempt to showcase a word about wordiness. Great observation! Thanks!
Awww, that’s really lovely!
Thanks, Keith. 😊
Heaven forbid someone be different and thus labeled deficient. Well done (especially since I can relate to both teacher and student).
A little humility is a good thing when it comes to those “educated” to believe they ‘know’ everything. Thanks!
