Swine flu anyone?

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?

My gosh. When I walk my two oldest children out the door I tell them every day, "Wash your hands ALL THE TIME. Don't hug anyone, don't share drinks or food. Stay away from anyone who is sneezing, coughing or covered in snot."

This was so funny, ha!

Kids are disgusting. But amusing disgusting. Kind of like really really old people, but more spry.

If it's an alcohol based hand sanitizer, you can't really get your hands more disinfected than that, unless they're visibly soiled, which they probably are, since they are kids.

How comforting to know that these children are the future

One of my friends has taken to calling it the "plu"... which is kind of adorable. Also wrong. But also adorable.

MarjnHomer said...

are you going to get vaccinated?

linlah said...

hold their hands because you may be the only person who will and get the shot.

Faith said...


I heard so much warnings about the vaccine now I’m more sacred of it than the flu itself :S
