I had to stop in at school this morning to make sure everyone was getting along without my constant supervision and I saw Merlin’s class outdoors conducting some sort of experiment. It occured to me that I hadn’t seen Ty in quite a while, so I dashed over to say hello.
I have to say that I was absolutely shocked by the change in him. Merlin has been telling me that Mr. Williams seems sad, but it also looked like he had gained a bit of weight. He is not a fatty or anything yet, but he doesn’t look like he has been running and biking and rowing like he used to. He also seemed subdued. Instead of the cheerful guy I used to hang around with last year, he was almost mechanical with the children. He barely acknowledged me when I said hello.
I have to admit that these changes may be my fault. We used to spend so much time together and I’ll bet he is missing his old friend, Lah Lee. I know it is too early for New Year’s resolutons, but I am making, I guess, a holiday vow to spend lot more time with Ty. I know i can turn that frown upside down in no time!
