A Thursday mystery, and the deciphering of the baffling journal entry. (A two-for.)

Those of you who have been loyal (I love ya like a sister and brotha) friends through these last (almost) two years will remember the many stories involving my being half-Dooced last year. (You can thank Suzy for that clever spin on my heart wrenching experience.)

It was a traumatic, painful, educational, and interesting journey - and I'm honestly a better writer (in my own mind) for it.

However, imagine my surprise when one of my students walked in this morning wearing this.

Although, since we do live here in Oregon, I should NOT have been shocked.


Either one of you loyal readers are the parent of this fella, or someone sent him the shirt anonymously.


It MADE my day.


(And if you’re interested in what the “queen of journal writing” wrote yesterday, it said “I love to go to school it's raining in the wetlands." Or so she claims. )

Okay...queen of journal writing gets an A for having squeezed all of that in a one line sentence. Wetlands???? Really?

Damn, and I thought I was so close with my guess!

Went back through your links to find out the scoop. I can relate on a personal level. Early on, I wrote what I thought (and so did others) was a very funny post about a situation between my husband and me. He was not amused. P-I-S-T! Boundaries were crossed on my part. I had to own that. Took awhile to stop being afraid to say anything about anyone around me.

Definitely learned some very keen life lessons with that. Thanks for sharing yours.

My word veri is lesin ~ how cool is that?

Well played my lady, well played.

I'm wondering who put that shirt on that child, the mom or the dad. I'm going with the dad.

dogsmom said...

DH got the school reference, but wetlands escaped us all. However it does explain the lobster bug.

Malisa said...

By the way, how is the weather in Oregon? Girl, school is almost out...I think I hear those martini glasses clinking now! :) Who the hell knew that Oregon was the Beaver State???

Somebody else who lives in Oregon needs to send you that shirt. In Oregon.

Ha! The Beaver State. (Kids don't even know, do they? Or DO they? The little dickens.)

Can you imagine if there was a bakery in Oregon that sold Beaver Pie? Don't even get me started.

Otter Thomas said...
