I'd love to tell you about Picture Day, and why some things made me think of pikes and heads on pikes, but all of that belongs in my "Things That Will Get You Fired" Folder. So let's just say that I survived, and I've decided against poking my eye out because, as my young math teacher pointed out, I would eventually run out of body parts and still have to do Picture Day. Arrgggg.
I'm still undecided, though, about the heads and pike thing.
On a more amusing note, one of my new yearbook staffers came to me asking for an extension on an assignment. For this assignment, staffers had to call a list of senior parents to tell them about our senior ads. I normally don't grant extensions, but this staffer is one of those really responsible kids.
"Why?" I asked.
"My rabbit ate it," she said, whipping out her half-eaten list.
Talk about a bad hare day.
I granted the extension.
