Signal Hill : Week Was Too Short for All Her Clothes

September 28, 1989

In her 29 years in education, Sherry Meinberg has heard just about every explanation imaginable from children. But she came across a new one recently.

It was the third day of school--a Friday--and Meinberg was overseeing students during their recess at Signal Hill Elementary School.

While waiting for the bell to ring, Meinberg, a reading specialist, told a second grader: "Isn't it great that we've only been in school for three days, and it's already time for a weekend?"

"No," the child answered. "I wish we had gone to school for the whole week."

"Really? Why?" Meinberg asked.

"Because," the second-grader explained, "I have new panties that say Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday on them."
