This is what happens

This is what happens

..... when you are 2

...... and you can't talk

...... and your mom takes you to get tested for a particular preschool.

You oblige and go along.

You charm everyone with your good looks

..... and that amazing long hair

...... that your dad can't wait to cut off

..... but your mom won't let him

...... because you're her baby

...... and you don't mess with mamas and their babies.

You do a few parts of the test.

You make your animal sounds.

You even play with her fun toys.

Then you see a window

...... and outside that window is a playground

....... and you want to play.

You tell the nice tester lady your new plans

and of course she doesn't understand your wordless language.

You yell

....you throw things.

.....you try to hit her.

She politiely tells your mother the testing is over

......she may call us back.

Your mom takes you by the hand

...... and slowly you walk out of the school

..... a walk of shame mixed with frustration.

You mom kisses you and tells you she loves you

......she gently buckles you in the car

......and she teaches you that the only way to cure a day like this

.......is to get a Shamrock shake.

This is what happens

...... when you are 2

..... and you can't talk

..... and your mother takes you to get tested for a particular preschool.
