A day without Ms. Perky is a day without sunshine. (And I'm not kidding.)

I know you all remember that adorable kindergarten teacher who works in the room next to mine, Ms. Perky.  (I can see you nodding your heads.  But if you're new here,  you can meet her here and here.)

Yesterday we were immersed in amazing, incredible 100 day centers throughout the morning.  Ms. Perky was working with a group of children who were decorating their special 100 day sunglasses.

According to Ms. Perky, "I handed them sequins, feathers and gems to totally be-dazzle their glasses.  I told them to knock my socks off!  But Alyn kept his simple.  I offered him more and more outrageous feathers and encouraged him to go crazy."

"Nah," he said as he declined.  "I'm not a fancy man.  I just like to get dirty."

It's hard to argue with a man who knows who he is.

I like a man who knows himself well!

LOL! Well, he is definitely sure of who he is! And at such a young age!

(snort! my captcha word is "hethin" which I totally read as "heathen"!)

I hope that she passed that on to his mother. When my soon was in third grade his desk was right next to the teacher's and the pearls popping out of his mouth were truly classic. Every time that I saw her, she mentioned one of them.

Apparently Ms. Perky didn't realize that "frogs* and snails and puppy-dogs' tails" were closer to what Alyn might have chosen, (smile).

When I said in the first part of the story that I went about putting the self-healing claims to the test, do not imagine that I got all the kitchen knives and keys ready and started to press them against the case
