NOTE to SELF

If a classroom of 6th graders consisting of 13 boys and 3 girls asks you for an example of
alliteration.....don't say,

"big bouncy balls"

Ha! When I wonder why politicians say so many stupid things when they know the media is always listening, then I remember how many stupid things we say as teachers that the students catch! :)

And just how long did it take you to calm the class down after that mistake?

Hey Pomo and Jarred! Good to "see" you guys!

Well...after the original burst of laughter, the giggling continued off and on for about 10 minutes...which was mostly them giggling at the fact that I couldn't stop giggling.

I guess I spent too many years with 4 boys not to appreciate a bit of "ball" humor! ha!

Of course, I suppose the incident could've been worse. Once you realized your error, you could've accidentally compounded it further by muttering, "Aw, nuts!"

Okay, I'll stop now.

ROFL! Oh man, that's better than the time when I almost sent off paperwork on a school board related project here with the word "reefer" instead of "refer".

Because, you know, school boards have SUCH a sense of humor about drugs... hee ;)
