Totally random crap

1) I had a bug fly up my nose today. Has that ever happened to you? I don't recommend it. It's way worse than your eye, ear or other bodily orifice.

2) Every now and then, church marquees make me laugh. This one had a very relevant political message: "You must be saved. I am God and I approve this messaage."


3) While my kids were writing an essay today, one of them asked me how to spell "unicorn." Now, the topic was "a unique aspect of our school" so I couldn't really see how unicorns would apply, but I figured that maybe she had a really good simile or metaphor going so I slowly spelled the word out.

At this point, about 3/4th of the class stopped writing and looked at me very bewilderedly.

"Um, Miss K, that's not how you spell it," one student said.

"Yuh-huh," I insisted very maturely. "U-N-I-C-O-R-N."

Suddenly, another student started laughing really hard. "Miss K, they said UNIFORM, not UNICORN."

Maybe you had to be there, but we laughed for like 5 minutes.

I guess the hearing is the first thing to go.

D1 had a SweeTart up her nose as a baby. The way she screamed, I think it was worse than a bug.

Bug up your nose does suck much. I have to disagree tho, smashed bug in the eyelid was worse for me. Church marquees are awesome. Awhile ago, somebody sent me a website that had a bunch of funny ones on it. Oh and it's a good thing your students wear unicorns to school. Did you actually say "Yuh-huh" though? LOL
