Every day at the same time I take my coffee break. I walk by the health room to pick up my friend so we can talk horses and goats for 15 minutes. So I was a bit surprised yesterday when I showed up around the same time and my friend was on the phone and said "Oh you're here already? Can we wait a few minutes?"
Then when she did come to break a few minutes later she was nervous as a cat. As I talked to her she kept looking over my head out the window and would say "Uh huh".
I could tell she wasn't really listening.
And I was talking about horses and hay....her favorite things!
She all of a sudden jumped up and told me to come with her. We went out on the front porch and I saw this....
Coming for me!
As my principal watched out the window, I crawled into the seat of the cart alongside Molly, horse trainer extraordinaire, and she took me for a little drive.
We went down the street past my little farm, turned around, and then this happened.
I got to drive!
I have never driven before and I tell you it is much harder than it looks. But what a feeling.
A few minutes later we were back at school, Molly dropped me off and went on her way.
Thank you Breeze. Thank you Molly.
And most of all, Thank you Gail. I should have known you'd have a very good reason to not want to talk horses and hay.
