Approaching next stop, I slowed down the school bus. Alice, one of my 4-year old kindergarten passengers, lived in a beautiful country house, surrounded by vast, green fields.

While opening the door, I saw some sheep and a llama grazing nearby. I smiled at Alice and asked her, “Are those your animals?”

The happy light in Alice’s eyes instantly disappeared. She frowned and muttered, “They’re not animals! It’s my mother and my sister!”

I looked again and saw a woman and a little toddler walking towards Alice, now slowly climbing down the stairs, one high step at a time.

Wow! So it was indeed a true-life experience. Were those animals truly her family?

LOL, this is funny Christer. Children are so funny sometimes when they misinterpret what the adults say to them.

It is a fun read, Christer. I giggled. Children are really funny sometimes, especially when they don’t understand what adults say. Sometimes also irritating. Nice story, Christer. Good job.

This is so funny Christer, even more so because it was true! I could just visualise the frown on the aggrieved little girl’s face. Great story!

I’m sure that little girl is still thinking she had a crazy bus driver back when she was in kindergarten 🙂 Great story/memory, Christer, really made me laugh 🙂

Why do my friends need to SignIn to read the post I shared?

Actually, this is a voting security feature. During public voting, only club members can read posts submitted for that contest. Since anyone reading the story is able to vote (click the Like button), we reserve these capabilities to members who SignIn. Before we implemented this security feature, people were voting multiple times and making the public voting process unfair and out of balance. To fix this, our staff finally decided to allow only members who SignIn to read the stories. Membership is free and easy, and ensures our club is safe, secure, and family-friendly!
