Lesson from the Lunchlady: Stop peaing on that!

This week in the cafeteria, I learned how to make chicken corn soup, i remembered how much I hate it when the custodian takes a personal day and I started to come to terms with my bosses soon-to-be a reality retirement.

I hate soup. If you know me even a little bit, this will nit surprise you. According to my co-workers, not eating soup is the equivalent of not wearing clothes. It's absurd. Everyone likes soup. Except me. Monday was chicken corn soup day. My boss always makes it but, as previously discussed, she is leaving (insert weeping). On Monday I learned how to make the soup. Here's hoping they'll be someone in the building left to taste it.

Why they are tiny balls of meat. My boss has served her children, her grandchildren and is now serving a great grandchild. This 2nd grader asked her what a meatball was. "Tiny balls of meat," she replied. "Tiny balls of meat." Then she began to ponder what children eat these days.

Did you pea on that? Lunch ladies, like everyone else, enjoy a little potty humor every now and again. Potty humor that messes with others is even better. We have some very young student teachers in the house and when my co-worker got peas all over a lid and I loudly announced in front of one of the student teachers that I really wish she'd stop peaing all over everything, her face was priceless.

I don't have to listen to you...you're a janitor! Say what? This is what a 2nd grader thought was a proper response when asked to stop doing what she was doing by our beloved custodian. She quickly learned that all adults in our building are worthy of respect.

A good evil laugh can make your day. I've talked a lot about my house mouse this week. My co-worker bust out in the world's best evil laugh while trying to explain what kind of deadly traps to get. It was sort of like this...



except with a hair net...

What did you learn this week?

I learned that I miss soccer practice..because I get to hang out with one really cool lady who makes me laugh. It's been way too long since she made me laugh.

You learned some great things and so did a little 2nd grader! I don't think I need to wonder where that attitude came from.
What did I learn? Let's see, I think what I learned is that when you go visit a friend and help her clean out and reorganize her craft room, when you come home yours will look worse than ever. YEP! That's what happened and now I'm wanting to do something to help out my craft room, where there is hardly room to move. I'd like a total redo, but I don't think it's in the budget right now.

I know you dread her leaving but if your boss is serving her great-grandchild, that is probably time to retire!!! And pooh on that disrespectful 2nd grader!

But I enjoyed reading your lunch lady lessons. Glad I clicked on this one (love your turtle pics!).

I love your sense of humor! We all need lessons from the very wise lunch lady. So how did you teach that second-grader a lesson--make her clean toilets? That would have been poetic justice.

I remember one time I was letting my students raid my stickers for a project they were working on. One of them dropped a letter "p" so I acted all stern and everything and said, "Who got 'p' on the floor?" They all came running and when they realized I was talking about the letter p, they groaned. Can you believe it? :)

Don't "pea" on that! Funny! I learned that you have a great sense of humor!
