March 7

A 5th grader who loves school shows up super early in the morning. The principle, standing at the front entrance, tells him to come to school a little bit later. So the kid decides to show up late for the first time in his life. He leaves his house for school as usual, but heeding the principle’s words, he thinks to himself:

“This is the late day I’ve been planning since the beginning of 4th grade. I’m so nervous! Well, the principle did get mad when I showed up early… so this is what has to be done.”

Is tardiness really something you can plan out like that?
