Kids are sick.

If you aren’t in the teaching profession, enjoy this nugget from today.

I pick my kids up from lunch, and I have to immediately stop the line to say this:
“Susie, quit flossing your teeth with your hair. That’s gross.”

As if that wasn’t enough to make you squeamish, the girl behind her leans up, taps her on the shoulder, and says:
“Hey, you do that too? Cool.”

Yes, it was the first time I threw up in front of my students.

(only kidding. But just about the throw up part. The rest is disturbingly true.)

    Annie! Friend!
    Jake told me that you left a comment on our blog today and it makes me SO happy.
    After skimming thru your past few entries, these are my thoughts:
    1. Kids ARE sick… literally. Almost 15% of our school was out today. I call it an epidemic and a good reason to go home, but no one seems to agree with me.
    2. We sing that “No guilt in life..” song at our church, too. How cool do I feel knowing that we’re up to par with Riverstone?
    3. I actually caught Titanic on TV this weekend, also having not watched it since college. But I have to say that I really do like all the ship sinking stuff after Rose & Leo get their groove on… the love story always bored me.. bring me the big machines and icy water, baby!
    Sounds like you’re well. The pic of you on the blog is beee-yoo-teeful. I’d love to see you soon, but we’ll see if that happens. Layta! :-)Face
