It's teacher appreciation week at my kids' elementary school. To celebrate, the students were asked to wear a certain color for each day. Today's color was yellow. My son rummaged through his clothes, trying to find something yellow. The closest he could find was a neon green tie-dyed shirt. "This will have to do," he said. As we walked out the door to go to the bus stop, I glanced down at his arm. It was covered in yellow marker. "Seriously?" I said. "Yeah," he replied. "Since I didn't have yellow clothes, I decided the next best thing was to make my skin yellow." Hmmm. I have to hand it to him - that was some seriously creative thinking!
