Take the Necessary Precautions March 6, 2009

Filed under: Random — contactcards @ 5:37 pm

So quick fast forward. I am in a new job working for Winners Circle. I love it, I’m a program coordinator there. Basically, we work with getting Corporate Volunteers in to work with kids k-6th grade on setting goals for math, reading, and citizenship. However, if we don’t have enough volunteers on a particular day, then we get to fill in. Yesterday I meet one on one with kids in 6 different classrooms! My final one was a 1st grade class… I should probably back up… we had beautiful weather in Omaha yesterday, so I was wearing short sleeves. So the psoriasis on my arms is exposed, obviously I did not consider the fact that I might be working with little kids! So I walk into the class to introduce myself and before I even got my name out one little girl asked what happened to my arms, I of course do not try to go into explaining what an autoimmune disease is to a 6 year old. So I just tell them how I got the scars origonally, which is that I was bike riding and fell off my bike and skinned up my arms badly and it’s still healing. Without skipping a beat, a little boy asks me in a somewhat accusatory way “You took off your training wheels, didn’t you?” How can you not love that!?! Next time, take the necessary precautions, keep the training wheels on!

    wah ha ha! that’s hilarious. little kids have no mental filter – they’ll just lay it all out there, won’t they? good thing you’re good-natured about it. 🙂
