Often in 2nd grade, the kids draw pictures at home and bring them to school to give to their teacher. I get them a couple of times a week. Usually I get them at the most inopportune times - collecting homework, while meeting with a group, or talking with another student. If that happens I take the picture, thank the child, and send them on his/her way. By the end of the day, it ends up being displayed on the bulletin board, along with the others, for a little while.
When I received a new picture today it was the same old story. I didn’t have time to look at it right away so sat it on my desk until the end of the day when I picked up the picture to pin it on the board. That’s when this one caught my eye…
It’s been up there for a couple of weeks, but just today I noticed that, with the kids sitting in desks and our classroom’s room number, that the picture is of me! I’m racking my brain trying to figure out what I have possibly worn to school that made her draw me as a stripper. That is one short skirt, and I don’t think I’ve ever worn f&$#-me boots to school before.
It’s pretty cute anyhow. It gave me a good laugh, and kind of made my day.
