Got to school this morning, and outside my classroom there was our school custodian, working with the leaf blower, clearing off the playground.
Actually, more to the point, he was showing some of my 6th graders how to use the leaf blower.
Given how this week has gone down, I couldn’t resist…
“Hey, Mr. W., you better be careful!”
“Some of the teachers are supporting that Republican, Newt Gringrich, for President. He’s the guy that wants to get you fired, so the poor kids can do your job instead. You’re gonna just give them more ideas!”
Our custodian just laughed and laughed.
