The soccer fairy

September 4, 2013

The soccer fairy texted me.
“Why aren’t you guys at practice???”
Uh, because I never got an email
and I didn’t know the season had started
–but tomorrow is the first day of school !–
and I haven’t even bought cleats or anything
Five minutes later the soccer fairy
shows up with cleats AND shinguards
AND socks AND a uniform shirt.
She’s all cool, all– what, this? No big thang.
Three minutes after that, little girl is
on the field.
Four, she is grinning.
Thank you, soccer fairy.
We owe you one.
