Bob stopped dead in his tracks and his wife, Elaine, who was walking just a step behind him bounced off of Bob’s back. “What the hell, Bob?” she asked.
“That’s Mrs. Harvey. She was the vice principal at my high school,” Bob said. “And at our graduation, she got up and said that her most important bit of advice she wanted to give us was to always listen to our inner child.”
“You mean the woman in the poster on that wall was your high school’s vice principal?” Elaine asked. “You went to high school in Phoenix. We’re in Virginia. Are you positive that’s her?”
“Oh I’m sure,” Bob said. “I spent enough time sitting across the desk from her due to all of the times I was sent to the vice principal’s office.”
