Stupid Comment for the Day:

OK, after getting myself all worked up on Martin’s blog (May I call you Martin, Martin?) I’ve decided to come back here and relax a bit.

I caught myself making the stupidest comment a minute ago: Oh shit, I have to poo and I’m out of toilet paper. I don’t know why I said it that way... Maybe it’s the rebel in me battling my proper upbringing. I’m just thankful that no one else heard it.

Have you ever caught yourself making a silly comment, and are you brave enough to tell us what it is?

Hmmm. That would have to be the time I said something like "People who live in Ukraine speak Ukrainish."

Sheepishly, an honors student raised her hand and said, "Don’t they speak Ukrainian?"

I once asked someone what their husband does for a living. She replied, "He's a mariner." I then asked, "What sort of things does he marinate?"

I can't say that I recall a specific instance but I tend to put my foot in my mouth often (it's why I wash them first when I'm in the shower.)

I was a lot worse when I was younger though. I pointed out my dad's boss' greying hair.

I've done it a milion times. But the last time I recall was last night. I tend to get delirious working graveyard and it's pretty crazy.

Anyhow, last night I needed to go pee and when one of us leaves we have to notify the others. And instead of saying the usual, "I'll be right back" I said, "I need to go poopoo." Why I said that when I just had to pee, I have no idea. But it was great, nonetheless.

LOL, I am so glad I'm not the only one...

Hey Fred, you're the teacher, why didn't you just tell her no? Let her stew on that one a while >:)

Thank you Martin! Now all we have to do is get Vavoom to give up his name :o) Or should we just call him George?

The dumbest thing I have said was when I was working at a ticket office. I was trying to multi-task and take a reservation and read a magazine at the same time. I was trying to ask the customer how many children tickets did she need and instead I asked her how many chickens, she laughed and said I guess you can call them chickens :) I still laugh over that today.

Wow! If I were a dude, I wouldn't admit to that name either Jane.

Good to see you made it home safely Teri! Did you and the chickens have fun at the park? :D

If it were a regular student, no hand would have been raised. If a question did come up, I would have told them they're wrong and that would be the end of it. (Thinking I was right!)

But, an honors student would go home, check it out on the internet, and then publicly humiliate me the next day.

Maybe I'll go back to teaching all regular kids - it is easier.
