DP Daily Prompt: All It’s Cracked Up to Be
Tell us about a time when everything actually turned out exactly as you would have hoped.
This incidentally is something that happened in my school.We the grade four teachers were planning to stage a play. There was no problem selecting the minor characters in the play. The problem was who can we select for the main role.
Keeping in mind there were five grade four classes and each teacher might want to have one of her pupils play the part.
I took a cursory glance at all the boys in my class. I was certain I have the kid who was perfect for the part. To see their reaction , I said , “I know I have someone who will be the best for the part.”
Immediately all hands went up , “Miss please tell us who is it?”
I did not want the boy to have his hopes up, I simply replied, “I can’t the other teachers may not agree with me.”
For the next few days I kept hoping that one of the teachers’ will notice.
Sure enough one of them came to me and said, “I have thought about it, you have the boy who is suitable for the main part.”
I was thrilled not only someone from my class was picked for the role, also I was right he was the only one fit to play the part! 🙂
