how lucky that a local fairy
stopped by our classroom
to visit our fairy house
she must have heard….
“it is frightfully difficult to know much about the fairies,
and almost the only thing for certain
is that there are fairies wherever there are children.”

how excited was i
when i discovered
that my local mcdonald’s
chose to give me this special cup?!
what a statement this was
what a compliment
they must have been waiting
for just the right customer to come along
this lid was like a badge of honor
clearly written in two languages
for all the world to see
i carried it with pride
as i went to add my cream
and it was then
that i noticed
that it had come from
a huge sleeve of coffee cup lids
all carrying the exact same message.
in two languages.
