“Dude - we got a substitute!”

So much to say and I know I’ll never get it all in.
So I had this interesting part to play this last couple of weeks – elementary school teacher. I have been busy with this, filling in at Monsieur’s boys’ cooperative school as a substitute while the regular teachers go on vacation.

Dear Mom and All of My Schoolteachers:

I’m sorry. I’m sorry I was such a disrespectful, ill-tempered brat. I’ll try to do better.

I’m glad to get that off my chest. These kids are wonderful, intelligent and very challenging. I’ll be glad when the other teachers get back next Monday.
It turns out that the camp cramps I had were a real virus, too so I was out for a few days there. Uggh.
Oh, two things I wanted to really note:
  1. Monsieur was really kind about introducing me to everyone at the campout. I really am starting to feel like I belong.
  2. I lost Monsieur’s Pentax digital camera. It was in my camping bag that I might have ransacked looking for Immodium™ at some point during that awful night. I must have left it out on the ground. Anyone could have seen it and taken it. I feel really stupid. What should I do? Should I offer to replace it? It’s not a cheap camera.

Ooohhh a teacher for a few days. Wow if only teachers looked as yummy as you, lucky students.

You could offer to pay for it, but it would mean he wouldn't get it for awhile. I would tell him you will make it up with some sexual services *wink*. There is nothing you can do about it now, its gone.
