Hilary at Feeling Beachie says it is time for some Friday Fun! I’m in. I’m all about the good time. After you read, I’m sure you will agree.
Just today I had more fun than one individual should be allowed by law. In fact, when word of my day spreads, I’m sure there will be an investigation. You can’t go willy-nilly living your life in such a wild, in your face manner without expecting to pay the piper. I mean, what would become of society. We’re already in a world of hurt, state of utter mayhem, so please, after you read, keep it under wraps…please? And thank you.
Okay, okay, I’ll stop baiting you and just get on with it. I’m sorry I cannot give out my personal information such as address and phone numbers so you could come cavorting but like I said, we don’t need any authorities involved. Okay, enough teasing…here goes. Hold on to your hat!
Well, TWICE, yes I said TWICE this week I was the substitute librarian at the school. I got to use the cool checker inner thingy. LOVE that thing! And I got to read to little people. I even got a round of applause. Yay me! Not too bad, if I do say so myself. They loved my dramatic interpretation of “Arthur’s Big Valentine”. Eat your heart out, Shakespeare!
So today, with Johnny in tow, I make my grand entrance into the school. All ready to use the checker inner thingy, sip some coffee, practice the Dewey Decimal System, then make a dash and get Johnny to his school. Like I said, too much fun, is just that…too much. And just as I expected the authorities got all involved. Yep, that’s right…The Vice Principal. Not the total Big Guns, but big enough to know the party was over. Cause she was waiting to inform me, that NO, I was not going to sip coffee and recite the Dewey Decimal System. And forget about the checker inner thingy.
She told me to pack it up, cause, I was going to… say it isn’t so… to TEACH MIDDLE SCHOOL GRAMMAR. Like I was tolding you say it ain’t so! Just like that, without warning, I was sacrificed to the Middle School Wing where all I could see for miles (well, maybe feet) were a whole lot of kids a whole lot taller than ME!
That’s okay, though, I walk small but carry a mean stick.
And after a short time it was pretty clear that not much has changed in the Middle School classroom since I was on the other side of the desk, a few too many years ago to mention. Yep, the game, pull one over on the sub is still alive and well.
Problem for them, I KNOW ALL THEIR NAMES. My kid is in their class and I know their parents phone numbers! So, WHY, would they think I would not notice if they all sat in a different seat. I’m not the sharpest tool in the shed but I can read a seating chart! Geesh, some credit please! Or like I told them…and I thought you were smart kids.
Oh yeah, and kids, if what you claimed were the teachers rules, NOBODY would hate Middle School…EVER! Despite the social torture… with that kind of resort classroom environment, everyone would be so darn happy, having so much fun, there wouldn’t be time to mentally torture your peers!
Heck, maybe I would have even liked Middle School and even my Dear ol Dad said he never wanted me back in Middle School. Guess I was just that delightful. But I digress…
And another piece of exciting news…again…don’t tell the fun police…IT’S OFFICIAL… After today, I have officially subbed in every grade in the school. From pre-school to 8th grade. Now that’s a solid resume, right there. But, alas, you know what they say, Jack of all trades, master of none. Guess the party’s over.
But not until I get to the Four Friday Fill In…
This week’s statements:
1. Sometimes I _____ that is why______
2. All I ___________ for ______________ is ____________.
3. I _____________ therefore ____________.
4. McDonalds’ is _______________ and ______________.
What I have to say about all of this fun…
1. Sometimes I can’t get enough of a good time that is why I substitute teach.
2. All I ever wanted for myself is to enjoy what I do all day.
3. I am a twisted individual therefore I have a twisted idea of what is an enjoyable day.
4. McDonalds’ is a perfect example of a horrible meal and I am in their drive thru on a regular basis. Not proud, it’s just the facts. And remember, I said I’m all about a good time.
So, with that in mind…HAVE A DRINK ON ME and LET THE GOOD TIME’S ROLL! McDonald’s diet cokes for everyone!!!!
