“Madam, Too Many Words”

We were working together in the garden, and I was explaining what I wanted done with the bougainvilla starts I had collected from various colored shrubs on the compound. It doesn’t take much to get bougainvilla going, but you have to do it right.

When I was done explaining, I said “was that clear? do you understand?”

He shook his head sadly and said “Madam, too many words.”

    Here is what I DO know. Your students look up to you, and admire you, and work their hardest to please you. You expect more – you get more.

    Kinano – Yes, indeed. What could I do but laugh?

    Whatever you do, BL, don’t economize here. I like your thoughtful and erudite comments, even though I have to censor the phony webnames from time to time. Remember, my Mother reads this blog!
