Random Thoughts

So, I realized my last few posts have all been about my job and my kids–and I don’t want to rant about that always.  While teaching is my biggest stress, it is also my biggest love.

So, instead, I want to just send out some random thoughts.

  1.  Why is color one of the first things we mention about people?  When I teach, I’m always encouraged to feature black authors, or women authors, or latino authors.  Why can’t I just teach authors, oh and by the way, they’re . . . (choose one)
  2. Am I the only one who wants a theme song?
  3. Why are diamonds a girl’s best friend?  Why not cheese?
  4.  Who ever decided that pineapple is good on pizza? (To my Facebook friends)
  5.  Why, in most schools, do they hire a band teacher, a chorus teacher, an art teacher, but usually not a theatre teacher (Theatre teachers are usually just part of the English department).  A school would never dream of hiring a math teacher  who also happens to play the piano to be the chorus teacher (at least I don’t think so)  Why is theatre the black sheep of the arts family?
  6.  Am I the only one who doesn’t find Jim Carrey funny?
  7. How are saggy pants comfortable?
  8. Why does everyone like pumpkin or pumpkin spice?  Pumpkin looks like its already been chewed and run through a colicky infant.  Why would you eat that?
  9. Why is it a pair of scissors, or a pair of pants?  They are always connected.  If you only have one blade of a scissors or one leg of pants, they are broken.
  10. I’m still waiting for my letter from Hogwarts.
  11. Does love like in the movies actually exist?
  12.  Have you ever watched a movie, seen the two actors kiss, and then judge their kissing ability?
  13. When people die in movies, do you watch to see if you can catch them breathing?
  14. Do LEGO people’s personalities change when you swap bodies?
  15. Why do we drive on a parkway and park on a driveway?
  16. Are we really the house pets of some giant alien?
  17. Why does corn look the same coming out as going in?
  18. I wish I was as flexible as a cat.
  19. Why are people accused of aiding and abetting?  Those words are synonyms.  They shoud be accused of aiding and aiding some more.
  20. It’s a good thing elephants don’t fly.
