Student: “What are we doing for Fun Thursday?”

Me: “Fun Thursday? We don’t have Fun Thursday.”

Student: “But we don’t have school Friday…why can’t we have Fun Friday on Thursday?”

Me: “Because there’s no alliteration, kid…no alliteration…no fun.”

Student: “What’s alliteration?”

Me: “Well, apparently, alliteration is what IΒ can teach on Thursday, while we’re not having fun.”

Student: “Crap.”

  1. I know that for me, alliteration for that particular day is “Thirsty Thursday.” Does that kid have a juice box he can rock out with? I think liquor would be frowned upon at your establishment.

    • The administration is FRIGHTFULLY small-minded and would frown upon anything stronger than the aforementioned juice box for children. I would, however, like to think that they’re completely ignoring my “water bottle” and all contents, wherein on ANY day of the week, really. πŸ™‚

  2. Oh–An onomatopoeia fan! No one ever appreciates this: I’m allergic to birdies and can’t have ’em now, but always wanted my very own parakeet, with vocabulary unsullied by others. “Onomatopoeia” would be its first word. Perfection, right?

    And I admire the Mean Teacher bar you have set. The first day of class each year, I told my students that there wouldn’t be any prizes. They weren’t trained seals, with fish to be thrown to them. I wasn’t there to be their friend. I was there to teach them. If they didn’t like me, that was okay, as long as they learned.

    (Of course, they couldn’t help but like me. That Stockholm syndrome is pretty powerful stuff!)

  3. Hello, i believe that i noticed you visited my weblog
