I love how kids like to think that adults are completely unobservant and ignorant. Just the other day, my eleven year old stepdaughter tried to explain that “facebook just popped up on the screen” when she went to Google.” Right, and the internet just gifted you with an email address and a false birth-date. Note: facebook is for 13 year olds and up; so take your 11 year old sixth grade ass and go play neopets.
You know those moments when you wake up with a sense of urgency; where you are startled, slightly confused, but quite certain there’s something important for you to do? Yeah, I just had that experience; I was startled awake by a sense that it was Monday; a school day. And just as I was getting excited, (because, let’s face it, the kids have been driving me up the wall all weekend), I remembered that there was no school today. The second 3-day weekend in a row; another teacher institute day, (I honestly think this day is an excuse for teachers to get together and get drunk every month; bastards).
