Just Another Ordinary Day for Johnny

A short story by Bev Austin



Miss Carter the teacher proudly announced to her class that next Wednesday was 'Take your children to work Day' and each child would be spending the day accompanying a parent to their place of work.
She also told the class that this was an exciting opportunity to see how parents earn money to pay for all the lovely things the children take for granted.

The children wriggled in their seats full of anticipation at the prospect of having a day away from class and experiencing the adult world of work. All except one child.

Johnny sat in his chair twiddling his thumbs, lost in his thoughts. Miss Carter noticed the lack of enthusiasm displayed by Johnny and quietly called him over to her desk at the front of the classroom.

"Hello Johnny, aren't you excited about visiting your parents place of work next week?"
Looking a little embarrassed, Johnny answered his teacher.
"Um....I won't be going to a place of work Miss Carter."
"Oh.....Why is that Johnny?"
"Because my Dad does not have a job Miss Carter"
"I see....what about your mum Johnny; could she not take you to her place of work?"
"No Miss, she doesn't have a job either."
The teacher looked at Johnny sympathetically.
"Oh I'm sorry, that's most unfortunate Johnny, I hadn't realised."
“That’s ok Miss Carter, my parents don't want to have regular jobs."

Miss Carter is now rendered speechless and not sure how she should continue the conversation but Johnny seems to brighten with excitement as he continues to talk.

“Both my parents had jobs but they got too stressed out because they never had time to spend with the family and relax. My dad said he had enough of working for someone else's dream and likes being his own boss instead."

"Oh............. I see, so what will you be doing next Wednesday when all the other children go to work with their parents?" Johnny thought for a moment;

“Well I guess I'll make pancakes for breakfast with mum, help dad wash his brand new sports car or maybe go fishing together if the weather's nice. After lunch, we like to go to the movies and eat ice cream on the way home; I like ice cream Miss Carter. Then …while mum and dad make a few phone calls and check their emails, I'll build a den in the garden and catch butterflies then we'll eat dinner together and talk about all the fun things we want to do tomorrow. It's going to be just another ordinary day Miss Carter but don't worry, I like ordinary days.
