say what

One of my students told me I remind him of Ms. Frizzle. My foot is getting better and this means the charades have recommenced. The twirling and flailing accompanies my lectures. But only when other adults aren't present. That would be highly embarrassing.

Wait. I still can't believe he said I remind him of Ms. Frizzle. I don't know if that's good or bad.

Today I taped paper towels around my upper arms. My short sleeved shirt was not providing protection from the indoor blizzard (aka the air conditioning) and I decided to tape something to my arms to increase warmth. The towels ripped off. My students really think I'm wacked out now. I'm blaming it on the summer heat (which causes me to go insane in general).

I also gave one of my students an alternate name for when she's being impossible, which is frequent. For example, if her name is Rose, I call her Rosalind when she's acting crazy. She's a very, very difficult student and I'm very, very glad she won't be taking second semester. Yesterday, this monstrosity slipped from her lips, "Ms, I'm gonna take you next year for your elective." I can't fake it for a whole semester. God. I sound really bitchy. But you have to meet her. She's the definition of oppositional defiant.

She's too hot to handle and too cold to hold.

Man do I wish someone had a camera when you had paper towels taped to your arms! Classic. I think we would get along beautifully. You're just as "interesting" as me (which, of course, is a nice way of saying that I'm strange). I love it.
