Last night as we all sat at the dinner table, my 13 year old daughter started her usual recap of the days events at school. She is very animated and we have learned that one of the most important things for her, is to let her to express herself. She often has to get up from the table during her stories and act everything out! On this day however, we learned that our 13 year old daughter was mortified by her teacher at school.
The truth is that every one of us really enjoys her stories! She makes the whole day seem so exciting and dramatic (what a surprise for a 13 yo..drama) Even her 15 year old brother looks on in fascination..I’m sure wondering why HIS day doesn’t seem as exciting as hers!
Yesterday, apparently she had a substitute teacher in her Math class…so this is how her story goes..
“You are NOT going to believe what our sub did in Math today!…It was MORTIFYING! Well we were all working quietly and she says “ok it’s too awkwardly quiet in here, you can talk and work together if you want.” …I liked that about her… she was actually a pretty good teacher…except she was old and you know what she did?…”
Of course we are all in suspense to see what this teacher could possibly do that was so MORTIFYING!
“Oh my gosh…right in the middle of class she took off her shoe…she wore those ugly crocs. Can you believe that? Who wears crocs to school? Anyway, she plopped her foot right up on the teachers desk and then got some lotion out of her purse…she held that lotion up real high…and you could hear it sploosh out down onto her hand…she looked at it real close…you know to examine it and then added a little more…THEN she started massaging her foot with ooey gooey lotion all over it! Her feet were all wrinkly too! When she was done she slipped that foot right into that croc. and Oh my gosh it was the most sickening thing I ever saw!”
Needless to say we were all rolling on the floor with laughter..she was so upset by this teachers act of… well…humanness!
FAMILEIS ARE FOR SHARING LAUGHTER WITH
I think the teacher did it on purpose…just to get the goat of those Middle Schoolers. Whatever the reason, it gave us a good laugh
