I forgot to mention one of my favorite moments of the day.
Lauren (high school ETA) is always warning me to be careful saying “the monkeys” because one day I will slip and say it to another teacher or the students themselves. Very fair point. Anyways, Lauren and I were at lunch today with our school’s “foundation owner” (AKA ‘the boss’). Very nice man. Very important man.
She was talking about how nice it is to have the occasional lunch out instead of sharing the cafeteria with the middle school- “Because,” she told him, “Then you don’t have to fight for attention over the monke— um. The students.”
I almost choked on my tea.
SO SO SO GREAT. So funny. hahahah
