So we had our Christmas party yesterday afternoon, and, I must say, the students . . my kids..ahem. . .were just great. But to set this up I must go back to an incident in class, early November, when Fall was feeling more like the other Season-to-come. . . I asked them a question. . ..a leading one to be sure. . .ho ho ho. . "Have you ever slept with a duvet ?" A titter went thru the room. . .some knowing grins. . . but no revealing answers. . I continued . ."A duvet is so nice to cuddle with. . .makes you feel so warm and toasty. . .it's vry nice. . " One of the. . .duuuuhhh boys "Is this a trick question?"
"Yes. . . ..duuuuuhh." hahaaa
A duvet is a nice cuddly down [as in geese feathers. . down stuffing] comforter. Those who knew, laughed; a few looked relieved. Blah, blah, blah. . .and the comforter usually have a duvet cover which comes off for washing, etc. And I went on with class, and the reason I began with sleeping with a duvet. . ..which is totally irrelevant here. . .except for what came next. . .Then two large packages appeared. . . .One was a totally awesome down comforter. . .and the other was a gorgeous blue duvet cover "which will just match your eyes so well!" giggled Letitia. . .and everyone roared!
I don't have blue eyes of any shade of blue! My eyes are deep dark BROWN !
