Driving home from work today, I turned into my neighborhood just as the school bus was letting kids out. One of the students crossed the road, wearing a pair of rabbit ears I’m assuming were made in class earlier in the day:
While the unexpected head gear was enough to make me smile, what was even better was that the kid wearing the ears was a 15-year-old African American boy who was also sporting baggy jeans, a front-zip sweatshirt, and sneakers.
As I drove by, I smiled at the contrast. The boy saw me, nodded his head in a knowing way, and smiled back.
Yeah, he knows. And that makes it even more awesome. 🙂
