Robert Fulgham tells the story of a fourth grade class that was asked to perform Cinderella for a school assembly. After listing the available parts, their teacher asked for volunteers, and the children began to shout out what parts they wanted. Everyone but Norman. Norman just sat quietly. Different from the others, Norman would often just observe from a distance. Aware of this, the teacher asked Norman directly “What part do you want?” “I want to be the pig!” he replied. “There’s no pig in Cinderella,” the teacher explained. “There could be!” he said.
