Today I was helping a kindergarten boy put his shoes back on after dumping the playground pebbles out of them. As with most shoes, these had laces a mile long requiring a double knot (and easily a triple if I wanted to go that far). A kindergarten girl was sitting next to him. I stated, "When I grow up, I am going to invent shoe laces that are not so long." The girl looked at me a little quizzical and asked, "How old are you?" I replied, "47, do you think I am old enough to invent them?" She looked at me and slightly bobbed her head "yeah".
