Random Thought Thursday #2

OK, so this is really Random Thought Thursday #3, but the first one was called 'Randomocity', so I suppose I am technically correct. Which reminds me of a scene on ER, back when Abby was still a nurse, not a doctor, where some unfortunate kidney girl was watching Abby overfeed the fish in a giant aquarium, which of course you need in an inner-city ER plagued by gang violence, although Abby didn't know she was the Angel of Death, and the girl said, "Are you a good nurse?", no doubt worried that she might end up like the floater Abby had just picked out of the giant disadvantaged people's fish tank, and Abby replied, "I'm technically proficient, despite certain attitude issues."

If I didn't stand in my doorway to supervise the hall between classes and just before and right after school, I could have an extra 32 minutes of time to record scores, grade papers, and fill out forms each day.

That 32 minutes in the hall is part of my job. So I do it.

I see Mabel so rarely these days that I am starting to think she is imaginary.

Three separate staff members offered to give my #1 son a ride to my building after a committee meeting. Are they that nice, or is he that annoying?

When a boy who is afraid of the dark wakes up from his couch bed to go brush his teeth in the dark morning hours hears a young beagle scratching at the front door because he wants in, the boy immediately thinks it is The Devil, and runs back to his couchy sanctuary to bury his head under the pillow.

Not so farfetched, when you consider that the beagle was in cahoots with The Devil only weeks ago.

A Sprite Zero can, at rest on an end table by the blue recliner, will remain at rest until the guilty party disposes of it.

Mrs. Hillbilly Mom's urge to clean can neither be created nor destroyed.

Bad things sometimes happen to good people.

Two-faced, self-important, scoff-rule people really, truly piss me off.

The above two thoughts are totally unrelated. Random, if you will.

I am writing a short story about how the Strong Man and Bearded Woman adjust to married life after the carnival. You can too. Check it out. Get crackin'. The deadline is September 10.

If 40 percent of your class is absent, is it considered lazy teaching to push the lesson ahead one day, and bond with the exchange student?

"I didn't know there was a bell this hour to say you were tardy" is not a good excuse for an 11th grader who has earned enough tardies already to take a short vacation from my class.

Hmm...I'm planning a new defense in case I become a scoff-rule and I'm found guilty. "I didn't know we were supposed to supervise the hall between classes."

Hmmm, no I won't bite...

I think your random thoughts are actually not even random you know. Think about it... they all involve you and other people..they involve other people not even cleaning their mess ..that could be my thought...oh, and I d remember that ER episode of Abbey and the fishes

Bummer! I thought I could fish you in with that one.

Funny thing...they're all about ME! Who woulda thunk THAT? I figured you would be an ER fan. My some-people-call-imaginary buddy, Mabel, does not watch ER. I make up for it by not watching Emeril. She has talked to him in person. Just like Wernher von Braun.

I knew you'd come around to my way of thinkin'...

We are the same person. Except you are nice to your husband every now and then.
