Agent J had been having a hard time at school.  He refused to answer the simplest of questions, thumbing his nose at phonics and basic addition.   One morning he dressed in his Army Combat Uniform (ACU) similar to what The Boss wears to work.  He made sure it was perfect, and walked into school without me.  After school, his teacher told me that his attitude was perfect and she had no problems.  I asked him about school on the way home, but he was silent.  Once we arrived, he exhaled loudly and said, “Well, I had a great day at work.  But may I have a new pair of boots?  These aren’t the right kind.”
