a crack me up post. Maggie and I are adventuring this weekend so there may be that.
In the meantime here's a little story. It might be a "you had to be there" story- consider yourself forewarned.
They are reconstructing the entrance to the school where I work. Because it is the entrance, work takes place in the evening when there is less traffic. Essentially we don't know what it will look like when we arrive in the morning.
Discussing this at lunch today, my favorite kindergarten aide said that she imagines little trolls, 2 ft. tall, coming in at night in their elf-like costumes, standing on each others shoulders and deconstructing and reconstructing the doorways. The art teacher began to sing "Hi ho, hi ho, it's off to work I go." When I, with my raspy-just-finished-having-a-cold-voice, began to sing the monkey song from the Wizard of Oz, the kindergarten aide laughed chocolate shake out her nose.
I consider the day a success.
I phoned her this evening and left a message on her answering machine singing the oompah loompah song.
It just goes to show you that not all teacher's lounges are full of cranky-a$$ed complaining teachers.
