Sometimes I swear my students are asking to get some virus or disease that will eat their intestines.
And they're trying to take me down, right along with them.
There is this boy who eats and licks his shoelace all day.
Another girl who thinks her glue stick is ice cream.
One that tries to cut her fingers off with scissors.
Others that think sharing is caring when they refuse to cover their mouths while coughing and sneezing.
A handful that chew on their nails.
Some that think their eraser is fried chicken.
A couple who pick their ear and nose obviously digging for gold.
Some that treasure their Kleenex, have made their desk a scrapbook, and plan on holding on to them for all of eternity.
A number of them who think washing their hands after using the rest room is taboo.
A few that assume using hand sanitizer will make their hands oh so clean as opposed to soap and water.
And then you have the entire class who loves to hold my hand.
Mrs. Cullen texted me the other day and said that I was going to die from swine flu if I didnt get vaccinated because apparently swine flu is a national emergency and the first people to get sick will be kids. I thought we were past all this swine flu stuff.
Anyways,I havent done it yet.
I disinfected my room, though, with Clorox wipes.
That oughta do something, right?
