This is a brief post with a really big lesson…

My fourth-grade daughter Natalie was asked to draw pictures of her vocabulary words this week.

We asked her about one of the drawings, she said her word was “boring.” The picture was of waiting in a doctor’s office. (Apparently we’ve forgotten to teach her the current euphemism for “waiting room” is “reception area.”)

Be forewarned, even the kids don’t like being made to wait. It’s “boring,” and the doctor’s name in the picture is, Taking Forever Guy.
