Step with me into a world where a day is a meal.
Breakfast is the appetizer. You can either go cheap, splurge, or skip it all together.
Your day at work is the main meal. It takes the most time to eat and it is here that you are either satisfied and come back to eat again or you are disappointed and vow never to return.
Coming home for the evening is the dessert. It is delicious and should never be skipped.
My meal was pretty good today.
I splurged and ate a great appetizer of Starbucks in the parking lot with hubby. It energized me for the day ahead and left my stomach quite pleased.
The main course was good but had flaws and could've been improved. My main course was like the sandwich paragraphs that I've taught my students to write. The meat was good. Imagine some freshly sliced Turkey with fresh tomatoes, crispy lettuce, and a nice hunk of avocado. Too bad the bread was stale. Entering work I encountered a parent who has just decided to start complaining about her daughter being in a K/1 class. HELLLLOOO, it's MARCH 20! Sometimes I want a stick handy to bop parents on the head. Again, the meat of the day was great. We took the kiddos out for a race in the field. I loved getting to see their little faces light up and a little jump in their step as they got closer to me -- the halfway point in the race. I raced the final little chubbo back to the start line and he *barely* beat me. 35 kids jumped on the kid in a Stanley-Cup-winning-shot-pile in congratulations in beating the lean, mean teacher. Darn, I'll need to work on my running skills ;) At the end of the day I ran into that pesky stale bread again when I had a frustrating encounter with the janitor. As long as I pick off the bread, the meal was pretty good.
Dessert is always wonderful, especially when hubby makes it easy on me and cooks it. I love dessert and look forward to it everyday -- no bread involved!
Enjoy your meal tomorrow and make sure you take the time to chew so you don't choke.
