I received a gift in the mail last week from a former student. Here it is.
At first I thought that she has simply seen the Patriots logo, been aware of the versatile nature of duct tape and decided it would make the perfect gift.
If this had been the case, I would be have been quite happy with the gift.
But she transformed a great gift into an unforgettable, top-10 of all time gift by adding the following to the accompanying note:
Mr. Dicks, use this to shut the hollering mouths of the Jets, Giants and especially Dolphins fans in your classroom.
The principal informed me that duct taping the aforementioned children’s mouths was not appropriate (something I also suspected), but that’s okay.
When it comes to gift giving, it’s always the thought that counts.
