Party time!

It’s been quite a day! Call me a party girl. We had a 6th grade social this afternoon. Two hundred 11 and 12 year-olds dancing, playing games, eating pizza and making NOISE! But it really was kinda fun. Think back to your childhood and imagine your teachers - all the teachers on the hall in the middle of a huge circle of kids doing the chicken dance with all their might. I was the lead chicken I’ll have you know! Mollie was there helping. Her face was a true study as I quacked and flapped my way around the floor!

When we had ladies choice, I went out and grabbed each of the little turkeys that have spent this first month trying to make my job hell and danced one turn around the floor with each. I hope the embarrassment of it will live in their minds forever!!

Nick picked Mollie up from the school and took her to a babysitting job. (I think Mollie’s babysitting is going to be a wonderful thing in my marriage!) When I finally got home the evening became a memorable one. I’ll post it tomorrow but in the back of my mind I keep hearing Sky and Tiggr saying “Be careful what you ask for…”

Oh! Be careful what you wish for...

Can't wait to read what happened. ;)

The social sounds perfectly horrifying.

LOL @ Brian.... yes, after a week of teaching the last thing anyone should have to do is the chicken dance with their students.

At least it's over. Now onto the post about your ass warming.

I remember my first high school dance. The first slow song they played, not one would dance. My poly sci teacher, a man in his 40-50's, asked me for a dance to get everyone going. I could always tell he liked me. Not in an inappropriate way, just maybe he noticed something about me. Anyway, it was my first taste of how a gentleman treats a lady. Thanks for bringing that memory back for me. I had not thought of it in years.

Have a great day.

A chicken dance ! Oh my goodness, that sounds so cute !!! I like your ladies's choice revenge on the little turkeys!

Mollie sounds like a VERY good thing. Hope last night was every bit as wonderful as you feared and hoped it might be !

It was actually fun, but very tiring.

It on its way!

Sometimes I have to be reminded what something like a 6th grade dance means to the kids. Thanks for reminding me.

Anne Elizabeth,
Last night is still on my mind and my ... well you know!

Sometimes I wish I could see us as the kids do . It would be interesting.
