Coffee Mug or Something Else?

As a principal of an elementary school, I get a special opportunity each morning to be the “traffic cop.”  I wear a bright orange vest and make sure children are safe getting into the building.  I also wave at all the parents in the drop-off line.  It is kind of like being the school greeter, like those smiling faces who stand in the entrances of Walmart.

The last couple weeks it has kind of been cold at 7:45 AM, so I have been drinking my morning coffee outside.  A nice, tall, hot mug of caffienated goodness.

One mom asked her kindergarten son, “What do you think Pastor Shane is doing out there?

His innocent reply, “Havin’ a beer.”  Apparently my coffee mug looks like a beer stine.

I promise it is coffee…only coffee!

  1. Dyer,
    When I saw this article, I thought ol’ Pastor Calvin was ratting me out to the media. My heart nearly skipped a beat. I would have been so embarrassed.

    But we have the article and the picture hanging proudly in our office.


  2. That crazy kid…everyone knows you don’t drink a beer until after all of the kids are safely inside! That’s hilarious!
