As I was walking through the school today, Mister Man’s principal called out to me:
Michelle, I want to talk to you about Mister Man.
My heart sank. Apparently the look showed on my face, too.
Oh no, she said. It’s not like that. This is a little story I wanted to share about what he said to me.
As the students were heading out the door to go see the Peter Pan play for their field trip, the principal was waving good-bye to them all.
Enjoy the play! she called to them. Say “hi” to Peter Pan for me. Have fun flying with him!
Mister Man turned to her through the crowd of students, a very serious expression on his face. He waved his finger at her, and his voice was exasperated.
Dr. L! That’s impossible! Flying isn’t real. The only way you can fly is with an airplane, a helicoptor, or a blimp!
She burst out laughing. I did, too, as she told me the story. This? This is his personality in a nutshell. It absolutely captures him perfectly. I love my Mister Man!
