Pretty much

I wish that I could have included this video somehow in the final report cards of about eight of my students this year, because this pretty much captures their learning this year.  Eight kids who are making and shooting “paper hornets” on a daily basis has a pretty profound impact on the hygiene and learning of a classroom.  I believe that I have mentioned my students’ impressive ability to crease paper more effectively by spitting upon it.  They do not possess an overwhelming generosity of spirit, but they are really quite selfless when it comes to giving up and dispersing their saliva.

If you are new to Peachy’s report card comments, you may be picturing a pale suburban clientele, in which case you would be sadly misled.  Aren’t they adorable?

My class is a bit less enthusiastic. And if they all put their hands up like that, people would be…

An Open Letter to Lands’ End or,   The Case of the Sapphire Blue Jacket  April 1, 2019

jacket blue

Dear Lands’ End, 

It is with the heaviest of hearts that I write to tell you today about the loss of My Precious. The tale begins in an ordinary way.  the day was brisk but sunny as I made my way to the salon for a cut and color.  As I walked through the door way my stylist and friend commented on the fact that she had the same jacket as mine, as she proceeded to take my jacket to hang in the back closet. What a coincidence! 

We went about the business of cutting and coloring— Me time of the highest order.  Little did I know that I would soon be plunged into the depths of an outerwear tragedy.  

I flipped through a magazine, checked my emails while I was “processed.” I don’t mind being processed l\like a can of Spam; and paying for it. In this way Spam and I are one.  

Of coursel all self-care must come to an end; I gathered my things while my stylist walked to the back to get my coat. Except my jacket was no longer there. The search party of haircare professionals failed to locate it. Someone resisted the suggestion that we alert the authorities.

Inner monologue: 

“Nooooooooooooooooooooo!”

Outer fake and casual me: 

“It will turn up!”  

Inner:

“What kind of sick, remorseless, sociopath would inflict such anguish”

Silver lining:  I got to borrow my stylist’s identical jacket, which was super nice but it wasn’t the same because it wasn’t my size. As you well know, this is a goddamned three season jacket! I even ordered a new Primaloft ( read: miraculously light insulation) jacket but it’s not blue and it’s just not as cute as Old Blue. I named the jacket after having lost it. 

She is gone, but not forgotten. Thank the powers there wasn’t a can of Spam in the pocket.

 

Yours Truly,

PeachyTeachy
