My Totem Hat

My favorite hat is a totem hat. It starts with a bull, then a deer, then a catfish, wearing a tiara. It is something that I created myself once upon a time To delight kindergarten students. They giggle incessantly, but do not get the significance of it. The fourth graders are less than wowed. I care not. I did not make it for them. I made it to get the kindergarten students to giggle. This hat is my joy, and keeps me excited about my job as a school counselor.

I truly do; I doubt I will retire. They may have to drag my body out in a body bag, and my soul will laugh when it happens.
