A young teacher began a job as an elementary school counselor and was eager to help.
One day during recess she noticed a girl standing by herself on one side of a playing field while the rest of the kids enjoyed a game of soccer at the other.
The teacher approached and asked if she was all right.
The girl said she was.
A little while later, however, the teacher noticed the girl was in the same spot, still by herself.
Approaching again, the teacher offered, "Would you like me to be your friend?"
The girl hesitated, then said, "Okay," looking at the woman suspiciously.
Feeling she was making progress, the teacher then asked, "Why are you standing here all alone?"
"Because," the little girl said with great exasperation, "I'm the f*cking goalie!"
