Best compliment

It's early and I've already gotten the best compliment of the year.

I was visiting with a teacher and an aide. The aide works with one of my students who is vision impaired. She told me that I had the girl all in a tissy because I told them that I didn't want any five paragraph themes in my class (actually, we write a couple but no need to spoil the fun yet). The girl told the aide, "All along people have just told me what and how to write. What am I going to do? I don't know how I want to write!"

Well, she'll find out. And that will be a whole lot of fun.
