>Well, it’s been a heck of a week so far. I opened my email (for the first time in exactly 17days) to find that FS (Favorite Secretary) has begun the countdown to spring break. 53 working days. Deep breath. That’s a long time to go, but I think we can do it.
I only had to bust into the super-secret favorite chocolate stash twice in the past 3 days. All the good candy hides in there. Only to be used in emergencies:
Like when I realized that the vision machine I drove TWICE to central office to pick up (once for the elusive power cord) wasn’t working after I charged it all night long so I could have a super duper productive day of screening. I didn’t know it wasn’t working until I brought the first 5th grader in- he’s a quiet, nice kid who waited patiently while I fumbled with the battery. I told him I was sorry he was stuck here with me (instead of in the classroom learning something) while I tried to figure the machine out. He shrugged and said, “It’s okay. I don’t want to learn anything.” Big smile. Turd.
Turns out the battery was in backwards. o_0
We had another kid who came to the office to eat his lunch- this happens when they get in trouble in the lunchroom- he came up to favorite secretary and told her he was allergic to dairy and couldn’t drink his milk. He required a different beverage. FS came to me and we looked in his record. It wasn’t listed in his allergies, but it’s not uncommon for parents to skip over such minuscule details of their kids lives. When the mom came in later, FS told her she needed to update the medical forms to reflect the allergy. The mom almost falls over laughing. Apparently he pulled one over on us. Gotta give him a point for that.
I also learned that it is impossible to eat 6 saltine crackers in 60seconds without a drink. I had heard it before but it wasn’t until cracker #4 was coughed across my office by FS’s lovely and hilarious daughter did I believe it. No really, you need to try this. Let me know how it goes. =D
