It was a very nice ceremony. After the officers talked to the kids, they had a few words for the parents. "This is what you need to know," said one of the officers. "First, you need to be a pencil. Not a marker. That's so you can erase your mistakes."
"Second, you must carry with you at all times, a rubber chicken."
"That's so you can tell people that you are not a chicken. And then you pull out the chicken and say, 'this is a chicken!'"
Well, that makes sense.
"And finally, don't worry. Be happy!"
Wait- one more thing. My daughter has a message she wants to say: "If someone insults you, you have to say out loud, 'you're good at soccer!'"
All right, then. Be happy!
