On arriving at my boys school this morning to organise his canteen lunch order, the office lady said to me “…here’s a certificate of yours. From 1989…”
What?! Sure enough, there it was, my name, coming first for long jump.
I asked where on earth they had come from. “Oh, there was just this pile sitting on the counter. I had one and saw some others that I might be able to pass on..”
(She was also a couple if grades below me, small world, she now works at the school she attended)
After being knocked for six, I finished my business at the school, but in the back of my head was the thought…. Where were they hiding for 22 years to suddenly resurface now..??
Keep smiling even when taken.by surprise.. 🙂
