I was called this morning to substitute at the high school for half a day. Half a day! I'm not getting out of bed to be paid for half a day; it's not worth the effort. I declined the job and went back to sleep for another half an hour. The phone rang again and I was offered a full day subbing in photography. What a fun day. The kids were working in an area that they enjoy and they were all engaged and on task. You hear a lot of criticism about today's teenagers, but the majority of them are caring and hard working. I enjoy talking with them and I learn something new everytime I sub.
Tomorrow is Friday and a group of kids at the high school participate in Formal Friday. I had noticed one student who is always dressed in a suit and tie and carries a briefcase...he stands out in the crowd of jeans, t-shirts, and backpacks! He started a movement to dress up on Friday's. Now quite a few kids participate. I wonder if I'll get called to sub tomorrow? I'll need to shave my legs so I can wear a dress and high heels...it's Formal Friday. Life is fun!
