pincipalThings are not necessarily as we always perceive them to be. 

Example: A mother is in the kitchen. She hollers upstairs to her son, who is still in bed. “You are late for school. Get down here right now.”

The son hollers back, “I don’t want to go to school. The kids don’t like me. The teachers don’t like me. Everyone talks behind my back. I’m not going to school.”

1. You are 41 years old.

2. You’re the principal of the school.
