School is back in session. The hairnets are open and the sneakers are on. Here's what I learned during the first three days of school.
Kindergartners don't know their names. I had one tell me repeatedly that his name was BUBBA. That is cute, but it isn't what we have in our point of sale system. Also not in our system--Hannah Bannana, middle names instead of actual first names, kids who have no idea what their last name is.
Why did the chicken cross the road? Obviously, he crossed the road to become lunch since that seems to be what's on the menu. At least twice a week...ugh.
Choices give me a headache. We have started the dreaded hot/cold veggie choice and have begun serving so many choices that even the grown ups in our building are confused.
The start of school can be a little higgledy-piggledy. We have a word-of-day calendar and the word on the first all student day was higgledy-piggledy. It means in a confused, disordered or random manner.
We are giving 212 degrees. As part of our lunch lady training, we were told to give 212 degrees. Apparently that is the temp water boils (one of those things I learned in school and forgot). At first I thought it meant, don't push me to my boiling point but what it meant was something a little different.
So how will you go the extra degree?

I use my blog to make others laugh, to share some cool crafts, to document my lunchlady adventures and to lament about the challenges faced by us all on the journey called life. Thanks for visiting. Please leave some crack...um...I meant some comments.
