In the beginning the universe was created. This has made a lot of people angry and been widely regarded as a bad move. - Douglas Adams

True story and a perfect synopsis of my week:

Imagine, if you will, a study hall. One of my students (student #2) is working, and so is an upperclassman (student #1), on vocabulary. Student #1 has just learned the meaning of the word "Agnostic."

student #1:

"Is anyone in here Agnostic?"

student #2:

"Not me - I haven't been sick for awhile now!"

I wish I was making this up.

Hahaha! I think I'm coming down with agnosticism too, I got sneezed on by Bill Maher. ;)

Sad (shaking my head). I'm in education too, nd I no you are not making it up. A high school student asked me how to spell Obama, I refused to tell him so he spelled it "Obomba". Jerk! Anyway, thanks for stopping by my blog.

Hahahahaha!!!!! Can I call in sick with that?

I told a college graduate recently that I did my undergrad at the University of Wyoming. Their response: "Oh? What state is that in?"

Catch them while they are young!!!!
