UNINVITED



You know you're teaching middle school when you open your mailbox in the teachers' workroom and find a taxidermied ferrety thing mounted on a birch log. Staring out at you with beady eyes and creepy teeth.

I did what any normal middle school teacher would do: I put it in a colleague's mailbox and shut the door.

I totally would have put it in a colleagues box, but then again I put most things I don't want in colleagues box without even bothering to remove my name.

You've got to get him back asap.

He's better than a motto! A mascot!

This totally cracked me up, as did the "going volcano" post. I think the ferrety thing is quite cute.
