All stories teach us something,
and promise us something,
whether they're true or invented,
legend or fact.

My Biggest Surprise

My daughter's third-grade teacher had assigned the children to write a story titled "My Biggest Surprise." Not until the end of the school year did we see Marina's work.

It read: "I got up this morning and I ran into Mommy and Daddy's bed and hopped in. But it wasn't Mommy at all. It was Mrs. Del Campo!"

That startling revelation must have been quite an unexpected shock to the teacher. And she had quietly and non-accusingly said nothing about it to anyone all year long.

But, what her essay neglected to say was that we had called Mrs. Del Campo late at night to stay with our children while I took my wife to the hospital to have our third child.
