Heard a smile-worthy story the other night when I was invited to the book club. After we'd finished talking about the book (the women were very kind) we went on to general girly chat stuff, including kids -- and then one woman told a story about her friend who teaches in a special school. They took the kids on an excursion to Sea World and a boy, who was autistic, got lost. Major panic! Of course they searched everywhere, but couldn't find him and eventually closed down Sea World to conduct a proper, serious, big guns search. Eventually, the teacher saw the boy in the distance, drenched from head to toe, but grinning madly and completely unaware of all the anxiety he'd caused.
In the bus, driving away, he was sitting next to the teacher. 'Want to see what I've got?' he asked with a cheeky grin as he unzipped his bag. And lo, inside -- a peguin!
