Two Things That Happened in Tha Hood and One in My Hood
1. Today, while working in an all Black classroom, a bunch of kids were coughing, and I told everyone that whenever that happens, I instinctually look around the room for some hand sanitizer. Another teacher, also Black, said, "The day I get that paranoid, my fat butt is just staying home." I'm sure she would have said ass if there weren't a bunch of second and third graders writing numbers backwards in the room at the time. For the record, I am that paranoid; my skinny white butt hates being sick.
2. In the same school, a teacher was asking her students what problem the Three Bears had in the story of Goldiocks and the Seven Bears, and one delightful young man said, "Goldilocks busted in they* house and started taking all their stuff . . ." So true, and you know what I was thinking? How is there no lesson to be learned in that story? She gets away with taking whatever she wants in someone's home not her own, they bust her, but she just runs out of the house, getting away with it! Can someone tell me the point? Shouldn't the Bears make her their slave or something?
3. As I was running today, I was thinking about Ugg boots and how they look foxy on chicks. Then I was thinking how I also like big boobs. So, why has there been no Uggs and Juggs campaign? I just googled it: nothing.** I should contact the Uggs people and tell them I could shoot the calendar with my limited camera experience free of charge. I get the best ideas when I run . . .
As for comments today, how about telling me where you do your best thinking? I know mine is jogging for sure, some would say on the can, but how about you?
*This grammatical error is actually how he said it, and it's one of my favorites.
**Evidently someone did think of it, as this looks to be some kind of theme party or something that I found on Myspace when I was looking for pictures. Damn it!
