Day 49- Poncho Kid

Dear Poncho Kid,

Lots of students were dressed up for "Tourist Day" today for Spirit Week.  I got a good chuckle out of all the fanny packs and socks with sandals and oversized Hawaiian shirts.  But you, you were the best of all!

I spotted you when I was greeting students in the hallway between classes.  I've never really noticed you before (even though your locker is right across the hall) because you aren't talking loudly or participating in PDA or wearing a hood or listening to an iPod.  However, today the crowds parted, and there you were- a real life Ugly Betty in your festive knit poncho.  The vibrant reds and yellows caught my eye, and I couldn't help but giggle as I noticed that your yarn cape and your sombrero were both about five sizes too small.  I'm not sure what kind of tourist you were supposed to be or where you were going, but you traveled with me for the rest of the day.  Every time I thought about you and your little poncho, I had a little laugh to myself under my breath. 

Your spirit and sense of humor are fabulous.  Our school is lucky to have you, whoever you are.

Thank you, Poncho Kid, you made my day.
