Another Meme

I did something like this Meme recently, but I’m tired and my brain isn’t up to being clever. Plus this is going to be a doozy of a day. This is the 10th day of the teaching cycle so today I will be in and out of my classroom, teaching teachers part of the time and students part of the time. After school I will tutor. On Tuesdays and Wednesdays I got to work at 7 a.m. and get off at 5:30 p.m. That’s a hard way to begin after an extended vacation. Anyway, this thing came to me in my email from my dear (non-blogging) friend, Angela.

  1. Afternoon Quill,

    Glad to see you back to the normal crushing workload. Tax dollars at work and all that. 🙂

    Never been kissed under the mistletoe? Isn’t that a misdemeanor? In Vegas no less?

  2. Hi, Brian — I think stress is all that holds me together. As to the mistletoe — surley you know that if you avoid situations in which you might be rejected, then you significantly reduce your chances of humiliation?

  3. Doug — the fist fight is story is an old standard, it’s happened in every pool hall in the world. I bent over the pool table to make a shot and some fella thought that would be the perfect time to touch my butt. Let’s just say he found the pool cue not to his taste.

    As to the Frosty in my shoe — I am hoping Angela will wander by and tell that tale herself. Her version is so much funnier than mine.

  4. Of C – That frosty will never die will it. LOL

    I don’t think you ever want to go to lunch with me again at least not one where we drive and pick up then take back to the office. I honestly never thought that light would turn so quickly and I never really anticipated that frosty flying all over your feet and then work its magic on the rest of your clothing along with the biggie pepsi. I take it that is the reason you gave up Pepsi? LOL thank you for helping me laugh. I don’t think I will ever get tired of telling people about our fun adventures at lunch and running yellow stop lights that are turning red and of course food flying.

  5. Angela — I still think you did it on purpose. “Here, Charlene, you need to hold all 5 beverages and three bags of food. We cannot sit them on the floor because I want to throw them there when I slam on the breaks! I still owe you one day of your life wearing a sticky shoe, ice cream encrusted socks, and slacks stiff from dried soda.

    DaBich — mine, either. I find me much too entertaining. :p

  6. Oh C –

    I never did intentionally slam on the brakes or go through intersections with that in mind. I felt so terrible over the whole mess and the fact that it just went from bad to worse with frosty and then the biggie pepsi, not a good combination.

    Sorry about that.
