i had a little surprise visitor in my classroom this morning. he was the stepfather of one of my students & i hadn't met him before. he dropped in with a "hey guys, how you doing this morning?" i was like "who are you? and why do you think you're wanted in here?" don't worry, i wasn't quite that hostile, but... then i noticed that he was carrying this:i don't know if my reaction was the best... i said "oh dear! are there bees in that thing?" such a kill joy, i know. but seriously. he said he brought it to me as a gift, they found it in their yard. thanks, but i like gifts more in the form of a 2 liter of soda or a gift card, for future reference.
and in other ungrateful whining - what in the h.e.double.hockey.sticks am i supposed to do with that thing next week when i go off track? i don't have room for it in my off track storage closet!
the kids have enjoyed it today. and i even shook it at a few of them saying "let's see if there are bees!" and yes, i know it's hornets. i like to say bees more. shock value or something, so suck it.
