School Stories - Lockdown humor
I've gotten to hear this entertaining story from Cicily's nurse and teacher. Cicily's school had a lockdown drill (where classroom doors are locked and everyone goes to a pre-determined safe "hiding" spot). So Cicily and her 5 fellow classmates, along with Cicily's nurse, teacher and 4 classroom aides are all locked-down in their classroom bathroom. Yes this bathroom is large, but not that large when you factor in 6 adults, 6 children and wheelchairs! So while they are all enjoying their tight space together time, the fire alarm is sounded. Cicily's teacher says, "plug your ears!" to everyone. Cicily immediately gets a big smile and yanks off her hearing aids and tosses them! Apparently she was successful in lightening the mood, which knowing Cicily, is exactly what she was going for.
