Out of Sight...

You see and hear some pretty ghetto sh*t when you teach in the 'hood. Like the kid yesterday morning who had the stick of an eaten lollipop stuck in his hair when he walked to school at 9am... or the lady who asked her daughter, "Aren't you gonna give me a kiss good-bye?" as she exhaled her cigarette smoke. I'm sure her 7 year-old daughter was thinking, "Ew. You reek of f*cking Newports" or perhaps, "Sure mom... Let me have a drag first."

On the other hand, there is the lighter side of things... Like this picture I took of one of my students on his graduation day. He actually wore an air-brushed t-shirt of himself as a baby.

Why didn't I think of that first? Oh, wait. I should be completing another Masters Degree in December...

when the buggerlets were still keeping me awake at nights and everyone was ooh ahhing over them i printed up some t-shirts with photos of me yawning on the front. less pretty, but at least it made a point ;)

It could have been worse. (And I'm fairly certain it's worse in say...Oklahoma.) That picture could have been of his baby.

P.S. I'm really starting to feel paranoid that Michele doesn't like me.

That shirt's freakin' awesome, in an unawesome kinda way. How could that other kid not know there was a lollipop stick stuck on his head?!

Happy undapantsaversary, bitch!

That's for letting it slip by un-noticed.

For your anniversay, you will have pics of Jaques and I (in the O-Dog shirt) imbibing, post toasty haste.

Because, as the modern one year anniversary is "paper", I think the traditional is "Cyclops".
