ks, my colleague and friend across the hall
was thinking ahead
preparing for the school year
when ordering the food
for her classroom’s fishtank.
there were two size options available.
hmmm… she thought,
i may as well get the one
that looks just a little bigger
it costs just a little more
but i won’t have to buy it again
until later in the year.
once it arrived,
much to her surprise
it was a gargantuan version
of the little fish food jar
we’re all so used to seeing.
it kind of looked
like an overblown prank prop.
but it was real.
i think it will last quite a while.
i think it may outlast her little fish.
and even if she retires in 30 years,
it may outlast her teaching career.
it may be her legacy.
most things in life come as a surprise. – lykke li
