so, just some of the things i've seen and heard the past few days...i went shopping saturday night and wished i had taken my camera. outside one of the tax places there was a black guy dressed as uncle sam dancing by the road and waving at everyone. that place does that every year and i've seen uncle sam and the statue of liberty, but they usually just wave. this guy had a radio and was dancing all over the place! he was great. then on my way to kohls i drove by the new lane bryant store. it's not open yet, but the store windows were full of naked mannequins and there was this guy standing outside smoking with all the naked mannequins behind him! and i'm sorry, but lane bryant is a plus-size store and those mannequins do not really look plus-size. that doesn't seem right! last thing, no one told me when i started teaching that i would ever be asked to explain a pregnant man to a bunch of 12/13 year olds! never came up in childrens' lit or microcomputers for the elementary classroom! i did tell them that he was born a female and is only a man from the stomach up. that answered it for some of them, but one still wanted to know how he is going to deliver the baby, so i told him to ask his science teacher. yet another time i'll wish i had my camera! i can't wait til summer.
i'm a Christian, wife, mom to the most awesome kid...ever, daughter, sister, texan, teacher, survivor of my grandparents :), niece, cousin, sister-in-law, daughter-in-law, individual that was probably born in the wrong time. i live in a too-big for me house with my husband and our son and some people think i'm spoiled because my mom cleans our house. but, actually, i was spoiled way before that! i teach 4th grade ela and texas history...yes, that means the dreaded staar test! i like being just a little too weird for people around here, taking pictures, modpodging everything, shopping, and music!
