Looking up

I was standing outside my new building, still under construction, admiring its beauty, when a construction guy came up to me and asked if I was a supply teacher. I was totally not expecting that. I told him yes, I used to do that, and he listed off some schools. They were all high schools, so I told him i only work in elementary schools. He had recognized me, not because I was not his teacher, but rather, I was the teacher next door to his brother last year. Sounds a little confusing, yes. I taught in a school with two kindergarten classes. My teaching partner taught this little boy and it seems, I was introduced to his older brother somehow.

All this, just standing on the street, looking up at the sky. It's a very small world.
