Making an impression

A while back, my wife went to a candle party. For the uninitiated, a candle party is a gathering where middle-aged wives get together to buy candles from a traveling salesperson, picture a Tupperware party with a lot of open flames. Anyhoo, Cheryl was surprised to see Beth’s first grade teacher present. Cheryl was further surprised to learn that Beth’s teacher, two years removed, remembered so many details about Beth.

“So Cheryl how’s Beth’s aunt from New Orleans?”

It seems that Beth made an impression, in one way or another. Say what you want about my daughter, but she’s certainly not shy.
