First Day Back

Whew. I'm guessing the kiddies were relieved to be back on Monday after 5 long days away from school. Finally! Homework and sitting on our butts all day. Yay. ... I did hear tales of kids that had to work over break, and one student regaled us with his Circuit City job where people were fighting over some computer they had in the store. ... I've never done that get-up-super-early thing to go shopping on the day after Thanksgiving. I guess I'm glad because seeing people duke it out and pull hair would just dishearten me.

I brought doughnuts for my advisory period. Sheesh, one kid got others who didn't want theirs to donate them to him. He had three. Blach. I ate 1/2 of one later, and ew, you then have greasy doughnut breath for hours after. Now I'm not virtuous or anything on the sweets front, but I guess doughnuts are not my "poison" of choice.

    I'm with you there. I can manage about half a doughnut, but any more than that, and I start feeling ill.

    Luckily, my girlfriend loves doughnuts, and will quite happily eat them til the cows come home (about 3pm this time of year). :)

    I guess it must be the grease factor ... no, because onion rings and fries are fine ... don't know what it is, but am happy there are a variety of OTHER sweets to fill their place.
