Playground Rule # 431 You may not play with sticks on the playground.
Saturday afternoon and I looked out the window to find the Council of the Boys taking place directly outside my classroom. Every boy except for one had a stick in his hand.
I had a revelation. Rule # 431 You may not play with sticks on the playground - must be a very hard rule to follow on weekdays.
I'm kind of glad that on Saturdays we don't have to follow the playground rules. Who would want to deny them the simple joy of a stick?
Here's hoping nobody pokes their eye out on Saturday!
