Book Quote

Morris tried to keep the books in some order, but they always mixed themselves up. The tragedies needed to be cheered up and would visit with the comedies. The Encyclopedias, weary of facts would relax with the comic books and fictions. All in all, it was an agreeable jumble.

Big Brother

"Congratulations!", Josiah's JK teacher greeted me warmly.  "Um, thank you?", I replied, wondering for what I was being congratulated. 

"Josiah told the class that he is going to be a big brother." 

My puzzlement slowly changed to amusement.  "Oh, really, he said that, did he?  I'm not sure how that is possible.", I replied with a grin. 

Apparently, another classmate was sharing the news that her baby sister was arriving soon.  Well, Josiah, not to be outdone, announced to the whole class that he was going to be a big brother.  We both had a chuckle at the misunderstanding and went on with our day.

And just to be very clear, no, Josiah is not going to be a big brother.
