I agreed, and suggested we were in the middle of a solar eclipse?
The older ones didn't think so.
Well, sez I, perhaps when the night was over, God forgot to switch on the sun?
The middle section got that, but thought it would be even darker if that was so.
Then, sez I, perhaps when God was switching on the sun, His elbow knocked the dimmer switch?
They all agreed that that was a possibility...except for one Junior Infant who put up her hand and explained: 'Its because it's the winter and the sun don't be so strong.'
I told her she was absolutely right, and was I the joker? She agreed!
Sometimes I don't know which is funniest-
winding children up,
being wound up,
some not getting the joke,
or being set right!
Then the Principal and the Clergy arrived, so we behaved ourselves after that, but I do soooo enjoy my 200 children!
