Laughter

So far all of my posts seem to be about school.  I might need to think about other things than school.

Monday was the best day we have had all year.  I mean THE. BEST. DAY. EVER.  I had high hopes for Tuesday.  My hopes were quickly dashed.  And by dashed what I really mean is those high hopes were yanked from my grasp, thrown to the ground and stomped upon as hard as a person could stomp.

Each time I thought we were recovering, things only got worse.

Finally, late in the afternoon, I turned to a friend and said, “I think we could all use a Snickers!”  She totally got my reference.

She quipped back, “Yeah!  Like when that really ugly guy eats a Snickers and turns into a beautiful lady in a really pretty dress!” Another friend yelled out, “Marsha! Marsha! Marsha!  That guys is real ugly and then he turns into a girl! We need Snickers!” Other kids chimed in and we had a great time laughing.

They have no clue what the references are in those commercials.  All they know is that it makes them laugh.  Hearing them laugh made me laugh.

And laughter, is indeed, the best medicine.

 

***update from yesterday’s post….My friend came to school today and puked half way through the day.  Friend was a trooper and made it to the bathroom before she spilled her guts!

  1. Love and can relate to this line: “And by dashed what I really mean is those high hopes were yanked from my grasp, thrown to the ground and stomped upon as hard as a person could stomp”

  2. Snickers help! I received a snickers yesterday from a colleague too!
    And yes, the stomping…we all have experienced that as teachers, huh?! Great way to put it and so happy that it ended with laughter. Laughter immediately brightens my day too! ❤
