Do You Think He Had An Appointment?

Little things can make me ridiculously happy. Like the fact that there is Easter candy in all the stores (and in my pantry), and I can eat Brach's peacock eggs (with real fruit pectin!) and Hershey's marshmallow eggs any time I feel like it. Like the fact that it is sunny and 44 degrees here, and I kept the window rolled down all the home after dropping Lucy off at school this morning.

And like when I picked Lucy up from school (and prepared to wait in the carpool line), there was a horse standing in the schoolyard. After standing in the yard a few minutes, the horse then slowly walked across the lanes of waiting mothers in their cars, whinnied softly, walked in the front doors of the school, and disappeared down the front hall.

It was the best thing I've seen in ages, and I smiled all the way home.

I promise! (He did have a human guide though. I left that out for greater literary impact.) :-)

When Lucy's teacher brought her out, I said, "Did you know there's a HORSE in your school?" and she said, "I know!!!!"
