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! 🙂
You are receiving an award–either one that already exists, or a new one created just for you. What would the award be, why are you being honored,and what would you say in your acceptance speech?
Right now I’d probably like to get an award for the kindness we show towards our two adorable Siamese+Himalayan breed cats.
Let me tell you it’s not easy to get their approval day in and day out. They do not appreciate us because we give them the best food in the market , it has to be more than this, we must regularly clean their litter, give them some private time when they like to cuddle each other. We humans are only allowed to watch them and tell them how lovely they are.
They give us time too, we have to play with them when they want to and continue as long as they think it’s worthwhile to them.
Everything in the house belongs to them, if we try to tell them, “No it’s not.”
They let us know we are wrong by the pitch of their Meoow, so we say okay it’s yours but do not take it apart.
Raphael and Gabriel keeps us on our toes!
Lest you feel I may understand you easily is this why you pretend to be what you are not__
outwardly you are a picture of happiness inside you are filled with tears.
I understand dear,I understand this deception
whatever you want to express you refrain from saying.
Fearing that I may grasp you with ease you avoid giving me any clue___
lest I try to include you in a group you act indifferent and unfriendly.
I know dear, I know dear your deceptive trick___
the path you would like to take you do not.
You want much more than everyone, is this the reason why you leave____
you avoid showing disrespect is this why you pretend to play and immerse your beggar’s bag?
I fathom,I fathom your pretense___
What satisfied everyone failed to satisfy you.
