Lately, people have been noticing my weight loss. I get a new compliment every day.
One of my students said, "Ms. Flower, wanna hear something awesome? You've lost weight."
I said, "You're right, and it is!"
One of the teachers told me I was going to blow away in the wind. Oh, it would be nice, some days.
My favorite, though, was this girl that I taught for three years. I don't have her this year, her senior year, but she saw me in another teacher's classroom and said, "Ms. Flower, have you lost weight?"
"Yes," I said.
As I walked out the door (the bell was ringing), I heard her say, "Wow."
That was the best.
