1) We send each other e-mails about kids:

"Oh My God, I'm gonna puke..."Timmy" just took his shoe off in Math smells like hot buttery ass. February Break can't come soon enough for me."

Okay, here's something I've always wondered: Do teachers gossip about other teachers? Are there teacher cliques?

Pensive Turtle said...

Oh hell YES we do.

And we do our very best to maintain the middle school integrity of bullying by nicknaming the geeky teachers, and ostracising them whenever possible. Of course, since we're of that 13-year old mentality, we must also watch our own backs, as those we thought of as allies could easily turn on us at the drop of a hat.

I think I am in some sort of hell. Destined to spend the rest of eternity in a pre-pubescent state of social angst.

Being pre-pubescent wouldn't be such a bad thing, in my opinion. So many unsightly body complications (at least for men -- like back hair [grossest thing EVER] -- wouldn't be an issue). And speaking of issue, that wouldn't be an issue either.

By the way, "hot buttery ass" is classic and should win a Nobel prize for Literature. - TDL

Oh man. 11-14 is such a bad bad bad time. You're right. I'm surprised Dante didn't think of it when he was constructing those rings of hell.
