Wishes, Lies and Dreams #11

I dropped the Thirdlanders off at the cafeteria today and stopped to chat with a colleague for a moment.  A Thirdlander interrupted us and said, "You know sometimes you have to go to something important.  Like two years ago I wanted to see the birth of my baby brother.  So I couldn't go to something else that afternoon.  Because you have to make choices when things are important."

I looked at him and said, "Yeah, I get that."  Then I suggested he return to his table to eat his lunch.

I'm not going to lie.  I am ready for winter break.  I think we probably all are.

That's hysterical. I was doing an author/illustrator comparison of Steve Jenkins and Eric Carle. As I was reading EC's fav book, Do you want to be my friend?, a second grade student gave a deep sigh and said he missed the good ol' days.

Everyone stop talking to me. That's what I felt like saying this week.
