I Gots Nuthin'

Famous words spoken by a first grader on the first day of school when asked by the teacher (Beachy Mimi) where her school supplies were.

Bless her.

Conversation:

BM: "Hi. What is your name?"
T: "Teresa."
BM: "Teresa, I'm so glad you are going to be in my room this year!"
T: Sucks thumb
BM: "Did you ride the bus all by yourself?"
T: Nods head yes
BM: "Did you bring your school supplies with you today?"
T: Stares blankly at BM
BM: "Things like crayons, pencils, paper..."
T: "I gots nuthin"
BM: " Okay. That's just fine. Can you tell me what bus you rode today?" (bus duty is critical for a first grade teacher)
T: "The yellow one." (I so set myself up for that)
BM: "Okay. Can you tell me your last name?"
T: Stares blankly
BM: "Your other name? Does anyone ever call you something like Teresa Smith or Teresa Jones?"
T: Nods head yes
BM: "What is that?"
T: "Punkin"

And so began my first year of teaching. Her name was not Teresa Pumpkin by the way.

That's pretty much how this post is today. I gots nuthin'.

But, because PAYBACK is fun...I'm going to put up some embarassing pictures of the Queen B this week.

So come back later. I'll have sumpin'.

I really wouldn't do that if I were you. I will be sending the blackmail pictures that I took of you in an email momentarily.

And please. Quit calling yourself BM.

Go check your email.

(You need to tell the rest of the story...why Teresa Punkin called herself Teresa Punkin.)

This will make for an interesting situation. I can see it now, blackmail, revenge, embarassing photos, and tons of laughs for us. Have a great day!
