magically high expectations

teacher! fabulous friend held up her juice box in frustration.

can you open this?

what's the magic word? i asked, not about to be ordered around by a 5 year old.

abracadabra she said to the juice box while waving one hand. after a moment she sighed, and looked back at me. i tried that. it didn't work. so now can you open it?

poor fabulous friend. learning self-control is hard enough in kindergarten, but now her teachers expect her to use magic to open her snack? those are high expectations to live up to.
