A Lunchroom Quickie
I know, I know. The last post I wrote was about the lunchroom, but it continues to be the greatest source of simultaneous horror and entertainment I have ever stumbled upon. In particular, I get to enjoy the daily tattle tale reports from my dear sweet second graders. And usually I respond to these reports in one of two ways: 1. I completely ignore them and say "Just eat your food." OR 2. I make a confused squinty face and silently walk away. This covers everything from "He told me to shut up" to "She's irritating me with her pickle." However, I wasn't sure how to react today when one of my repeat offenders called me over to his table to say that his friend, "Keeps telling the lunch lady that I like her and want to take her to Applebee's." Neither of my standard reactions covered this one because I looked at that kid in total shock and said, "Is Applebee's still open?"
