Who's Got the Button?

Setting: "A" Day. Beginning of 5/6 block. Right after lunch.

Most of the students are in the classroom, getting settled and starting on their warm-up. The timer that I have going after lunch each day shows that class begins in just under a minute.

Enter: student of interest.

Student: Ms. G! Can I got to the FACS room? My button popped off!

I look over and see him walking like a cowboy, with legs widely straddled, trying to keep his pants from falling down. Needless to say, I could barely keep myself from buckling over with laughter at the sight.

I let him go down to the FACS room and started class. He came back not quite 10 minutes later with pants properly held in place with a proud look on his face. His comment when entering?

"I sewed the button all by myself!"
