So, I have a special day here. I sub for a guy who goes between two schools. He starts in the morning at the Middle School, then goes over to the HS halfway through. Here is the awesome part. I get paid for a full day. Let me explain. I showed up at 715am this morning (The time at which teachers are supposed to show up at the MS) and was told that his first class is not until 930am. OK. Cool, I just came back home (5 blocks) and had some more coffee.
I subbed at the HS yesterday. As usual, the kids are smartasses...but, so am I. I think that lends to my popularity. Weird. Still, I am a sub that has never sunk...I have been damaged with a heavy list, but never sunk.
I found it amusing how no one but my beloved wife cottoned onto the idea of a picture being worth 1000 words. I think her Goonies quote was an added bit of flair...though, I am not sure I compare to Chunk THAT well.
Which reminds me, I offered the classes the chance to get out a minute early if they could identify the movie from which I quoted. Here is the quote: "I don't like you either...I've got the death sentence in twelve systems!" I may have paraphrased a little, but the gist is there. I wonder if any of you can identify the movie. I might be inclined to reward a correct answer! (NOT CORA, since she already knows!)
Well, the clock is inching toward the time when I need to leave...OH, the torture of beig a substitute teacher!!!
