School Daze, or the Freaky Friday

Sometimes Ernest and I compare notes about the things that occur at school. (He's in 7th grade, I'm an aide.) Yesterday was a strange day.

  1. A second grader had diarrhea all over the boy's bathroom. I had to herd the other boys to a different bathroom while poor Mr. Nacho, in mask and gloves, cleaned up the mess.
  2. At recess, two boys got in trouble (by me) for calling each other babies.
  3. Another boy hurt himself during soccer. "I hurt both my head AND my privates," he wailed.
  4. The first grade soccer game was cancelled (by me) for 4 counts of poor sportsmanship and unnecessary roughness.
  5. Room 8 did not pay attention.
  6. Room 9 interrupted.

Life on the playground is never dull.

Ernest, on the other had, had nothing unusual to relate, so we rehashed some old events such as when the P.E. teacher's son tried to hurdle over a metal post and didn't make it and was stuck hanging there by his shorts.

You have an exciting school! Perhaps I didn't pay enough attention when I was in class?

A day you hope to not repeat, I would say!

This does not make me look forward to school time...

Wow! My day seemed so tame compared to that itinerary.

I love the "by me" stuff. Someone has to keep kids in line and teach them how to behave!
