GIRL: Mommy, Ms. J told us that coffee makes you short. She said that is why she ended up being short, because she looooves coffee and now she is short.
JCK: I think...Ms. J was joking, sweetie.
GIRL: No, she had her serious face. When Ms. J has her serious face she is not joking.
GIRL: She didn't smile afterwards...She had her serious face and didn't smile. She smiles later if she is joking.
JCK: mmmmm...then probably best to steer clear of coffee, GIRL.
JCK's children have both been lucky enough to have Ms. J. She will be treasured always...for her belief in each child, for her humor, and for her amazing teaching. Thank you, J...
