In the out door

Do you ever try to exit a building, through the exit door, only to have to wait for people coming IN the out door to clear the doorway? I actually watched someone walk past the entrance to go in the out door. What is up with that? I’ll admit, I have been accused of being […]

One worn knee

I have recently noticed that all the pants I wear for substitute teaching are worn thin at the right knee. Two pairs even have small rips in them now. It took me a little while to realize that my right knee is always the knee I put down when I get down to look a […]

Ball Hog

Most of us have played a sport with someone we would consider a “ball hog.” For those who haven’t experienced that, sportingcharts.com/dictionary defines a ball hog as “A player who would rather shoot or hold onto the ball than pass to his or her teammates. Ball-hogging is considered a selfish act.” I consider a ball […]

Don’t Bend Over

I recently had some skin cancer removed from my forehead. It was small on the surface and I am fine, but it left a pretty big hole. They stitched it up and told me, “Don’t bend over, exercise, or lift anything heavier than 10 pounds, for a week.” WHAT? Have you ever realized how many […]

Spaghetti Brains

Jim often reminds me that I have “But First Syndrome” (BFS). No, I’m not walking backwards. I have numerous things going on at once, and as I remember something, I go do it and leave what I was doing, until I walk by it again. I know some of you know what I’m talking about! […]

Meltdown or tantrum?

I must say, I had never heard of the word “meltdown” until I started working with students with Autism Spectrum Disorder. I suppose that was almost ten years ago. At that time I heard it strictly used to describe the uncontrollable acting out brought on by massive frustration at not being able to communicate with […]

Inconsiderate or lack of knowledge?

It amazes me how many kids don’t grab the door on their way through it. You know, when you walk through the door, the person in front of you is holding it open, then you take it as you walk through, then the next person behind you holds it as they go through, etc. Everyone […]

Righteous Anger and Peaceful Protest

I’m sorry, but I do not understand how burning businesses brings Michael Brown back, or even helps prove a point. I understand people are upset about the decision to not charge the police officer.  Was the grand jury acting correctly when they made that decision?  We will never know what truly happened that night.  There […]

Bullying

It’s Bully Awareness month in our local schools. There is quite a lot of information being presented to the students, and there was even a Bully Awareness DAY. The day that all the students wore the same color for unity in a cause, I witnessed a child (in the appropriate color shirt) sitting alone, against […]
