On Friday of this last week I was talking to my kids on the bus and on the elementary route, one young boy asked; "Does Miss Shannon ever steal any food from you?" To which I responded: "All the time! ESPECIALLY if t's CHOCOLATE!" "Coco Pebbles, she always steals my Coco Pebbles." He then asked "How do you get her to stop?" to which I responded; "Well, you either get real good at hiding them or..." "I can't hide them," he stated "everyone is taller than me!" "Well, what I do, I spit in my cereal so she won't take it." After the group "EEEEW!" the young boy asked; "What does Miss Shannon do after you do that?" I said; "She looks deep into my eyes and loving says...'I'm gonna throat punch for being gross.'" and we all laughed.
Fast forward to Monday morning, I show up to pick up this young man at the scheduled time, who is now hiding something behind his back, it's VERY obvious. As he gets on the bus, he hands me... a large box of Coco Pebbles that they bought for me over the weekend.The young man said to me; "There, now you can have your own box." I laughed so hard I couldn't breath, thanks guys, I needed that.
As a "thank you" for what they did for me, I drew them a little note. You can see the picture below. Below that is the video of me drawing the cartoon speeded up to 8x its normal speed.
May all of you have a day filled with Coco Pebbles!
