One of my students came to me.

"ms widget, I need to go to the office, I totalled my car yesterday. I need to get my medicine."

I am not a cruel woman. I will not deny a child in pain.

"okay" Glad she's still here in one piece.

after kiddo had left.

*blink* *blink*

This was the kid I had last year who always complained when she was behind me. Claimed I drove too slow. She never believed me when I said "no, the speed limit does not mean you can drive 5 miles faster."

glad she's sill in one piece, sorry she's hurt, concerned that she was frightened.

But still *snicker*

not for childen's ear

You are a high school student staying late because your school janitor uncle is your ride. There are some hefty teachers discussing upcoming homecoming week. Dress in camoflauge day, tropical hawaiian day, dress as your favorite super hero da

As you are bopping down the hall you hear the 200 pound plus bald math teacher opines "I'm going to be spandex man."

High school student immediately backs up.

Never forget

My niece worked at the WTC. Grace of God, she was off that morning.
