Um, well, wait, what day is it? (I'm a bit distracted..)

First, let's just say this happened.

Then, today at centers when I told my reading group they were to use markers and gave them COLORED PENCILS, Sasha looked at me and asked, "What in the name of JESUS are you doing, Mrs. Smythe?"

And as I laughed out loud she added, "Did I make you laugh AGAIN?  Okay, that'll be ten bucks.  I decided you have to pay me every time I make you laugh.  I'll be RICH pretty soon!"

And yes, she is right.  She'll be mighty, mighty rich.    (And after our discussion about words she SHOULDN'T say in school, she changed her price.  She now wants one HUNDRED bucks.  And I need to practice my straight face.  As soon as I come back down to earth, that is.)

So when in the name of jesus are you going to spill some details lady? The rest of us have to live vicariously through you out here...

Sue said...

Well, even though there are NO details yet. . .I couldn't be happier for you!! Sometimes in life you get just what you deserve. And in your case, "happiness" is long overdue!!

Take care, Sue
